Water Ballet and the Hollywood glam

Since everybody is at the pool these days trying to escape the heat in the city, here’s something that fueled my imagination while browsing British Vogue and splashing my feet on the edge of the pool: water ballet.

‘Sync or Swim’ editorial talks about Esther Williams, the Hollywood mermaid of the 50s. After retiring from competitive swimming, Esther Williams made a career in ‘aquamusicals’ and apperaing in her biographical role, as Australian swimming star Annette Kellerman in Million Dollar Mermaid.

Without Esther Williams, water ballet or synchronized swimming lost its Hollywood glam, but nevertheless it’s an amazing peformance you can watch in the Olympic Games.
