T-Rex auditions for Ballet Chicago

The music? The theme for Jurassic Park, obviously


By Lizzie Davis

This T Rex has big ballet ambitions and he's not letting his tiny arms hold him back

This T-Rex joined in morning class with Ballet Chicago – and the ballet master tried their very best to be encouraging despite the dinosaur's tiny arms and little legs. It's fair to say the dinosaur's barre work left something to be desired.  

And what was the music that morning? Well there was only one option, of course: John Williams' iconic theme to Jurassic Park.

It's unclear whether the T-Rex was successful in their audition.
