Dancers are prone to take cat naps between class and rehearsals or before performances. And because dancers also love taking pictures of each other, Instagram is full of dancers sleeping in the craziest places. It all makes for some hilarious backstage snooze pics!
Because that looks comfortable.
What just happened here?! That is one tough instructor.
Long Day At Rehearsal?
Did someone spike her Junior Mints — or did she just rehearse all day?
Who needs pillows when there’s this soft, cozy wall right here?
Just Hanging Out
Now you’re just messing with us.
Don't Try This In Class
We’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and say she’s “stretching out her shoulders.” #YeahRight
Before and after. Yup, pretty much. 😕

One Tired Pole Dancer
We’re pretty sure no one’s ever requested a dance like this. Then again, maybe it’s an “extreme beginners” pole-dancing class?
Find a hallway. Grab a tutu as a pillow and…nap time!
Swan Lake? More like swan dive.
Plenty of Legroom
How tired do you have to be to crash out like this??
What Really Happens Backstage
The tiredest fairies ever.
Don't Look Down
Faceplant waiting to happen.
That's a Lazy Way to Play 'Telephone'
These guys are obviously faking, but so what? They’re cute!
Careful! The flower crown is already squashed, and this puppy is gonna squirm.
The Royal Nap
Even in the wings of London’s Royal Opera House, a Sugar Plum Fairy’s gotta grab the zzzz’s where she can.
Visions of sugar plum fairies danced in their heads…
We really hope this is ground level and not on a ledge.
Folding Chair, Folding Body
Can she even get out of that elegantly?
The leader’s face is saying: “If anyone pushes us from behind, we’re in trouble.”
Get A Room, Guys
They’re very Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway at the end of “Bonnie and Clyde.”
