Kelly Ripa Shares Photo of Her Balancing En Pointe Before Next Month's Guinness World Record Attempt
Kelly Ripa balanced herself well as she shared a photo standing on her toes in pointe shoes, looking like a true ballerina.
“Live with Kelly and Ryan” host, Kelly Ripa, showed an impressive photo of herself balancing on her tiptoes while wearing a tank top, sweat pants, and pointe shoes. The picture showed her toned arms bent slightly backward as she stood tall like a ballerina.
“Practice makes……um……something?” Ripa captioned the photo.
The post comes after the announcement that “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and the American Ballet Theatre are working together to break the Guinness World Record for Most Ballet Dancers En Pointe Simultaneously.
Isabella Boylston and James Whiteside of American Ballet Theatre will be joining the attempt scheduled on the morning of September 10. If more than 245 people join the challenge to stay en pointe for an entire minute, they will succeed.
“This record-breaking challenge is a great way to share our art form with a large audience and make everyone feel included,” Boylston and Whiteside said in a statement. “All are welcome to participate, and all you have to do is stand en pointe!” added “The Cindies.”
The record they are set to break took place in Orlando, Florida after the Orlando Ballet, Dr. Phillips High School Dance Magnet, and dance learning centers teamed up in 2011.
It comes as no surprise that Ripa is fit for the role of standing en pointe; after all, she is a strong woman with a fabulous physique. She credits her figure to her daily workouts and routines, including dancing.
She also does a high-alkaline, low-acid diet, which is almost vegan with occasional fish consumption. Her husband, Mark Consuelos, is also one to watch his food intake as he follows a low-calorie, high-fat keto diet.
At times, the 48-year-old host faces criticism for her boyish “Peter Pan” look, which comes from social media users, but her spirit is never let down with her husband’s kind and encouraging words.
Despite being body-shamed at times, Ripa continues to post photos of herself online, flaunting her incredible physique, knowing that she worked hard to look beautiful.
