A ballet video with 467 million views in six months

Taylor Swift is tuned in to classical arts. She makes donations to her local orchestra and likes dressing up in a tutu.

What impresses about her video – apart from the viewing numbers – is the sophisticated, spot-on timing of the camera shots.

Puts much else in the shade.

  • This is one of the rare pop-music videos that not only includes ballet dancers but also does not hold the art up to ridicule or parody. It is simply one of the several dance styles in the video that can be driven to high levels of artistic and/or athletic excellence. The music itself, no surprise, is great fun to dance to no matter what your style or skill level. Well done, Taylor!
