  8. Navirella is based on a Korean comic and the comic itself is fabulous, it makes me cry reading each episode. Gradually the reason why this 70 year old man is starting ballet at this age is revealed. (it will be a spoiler so I won't write but some readers might assume) The message of this story is so wonderful that you can still be beautiful by practicing ballet even if you are not going to be professional or are old or having handicaps. It is curious that most of the family members are not supportive of this man, so this story is something like a Billy Elliot old man version.

Misty Copeland was one of the first to comment. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CNv9RgcDWB5/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link and a lot of dancers from Royal Ballet has paid tribute, as well as Manuel Legris (on his instagram story) Scarlett was from the class of 2005 at Royal Ballet school that has many talents, such as Xander Parish, Joseph Caley, Thomas Foster, Alexander Jones, William Moore, Aaron Robison.
