When not winning over social media with sweet photos of her husband John Legend and daughter Luna, looks like Chrissy Teigen gets busy polishing her ballet skills. Sassy as always, the supermodel recently posted a video showing off her classical moves En Pointe.

But little did the swimsuit model realise that the seemingly harmless dance video would garner her much criticism and unwarranted concern from her fans.

Taking to social media on Saturday (19 August), Teigen shared the video, writing alongside, "Little known fact - I have been in love with ballet since I was young. Watching, at least. Someone sent me their old shoes. I'm....real good."

In the clip, the mother-of-one – adorably supported by her singer husband – attempts a little twirl until she misses towards the end.

And even though, Teigen seems to lose balance for a moment – with a loud exclamation – she still has Legend holding on to her.

However, that didn't stop concerned viewers from sharing their opinion.

"Chrissy please be careful. It is so dangerous if you're not trained to get hurt with pointe shoes and you are a treasure so (sic)," one Twitter user shared, while another simply wrote, "Purely dangerous".

A self-confessed professional suggested, "As an actual ballerina this is painful to watch but ur not actually that bad," adding, "also it's dangerous to play around with pointes when ur not trained, specially without elastic & ribbon, be careful!"

Thankfully for Teigen, some of her followers could see the fun side to the whole dancing video. "She literally tried them on for fun and her husband is holding her hands why are people trippin' about her hurting herself," commented a fan.

Another viewer joked, "Brace for impact. The ballet trolls are coming." "Little known fact - this is actually pretty damn good. And I'm a professionally trained ballet dancer!" someone else added.

Not to be left behind, even Teigen joined in the social media conversation, coming up with the smartest response for all her concerned fans.

"I get it. I could have broken an ankle. You can stop telling me. If only you knew the other 1000 bone-breaking things I attempt daily," she wrote following the sudden frenzy over her video on the internet.
