Ballerinas are the most underrated athletes.
GUYS SHE IS SPINNING ON HER TOE.
ALL HER WEIGHT ON HER TOE.
Thank you someone for finally acknowledging this.
People always make ballet seem like such a wimpy, easy sport.
While we are dancing, we have to:
- turn out our feet
- hyper extended our knees
- tuck our buts under
- flatten our stomach
- close your ribcage (to the point where you cant breathe)
- shoulders are down and back
- elbows are lifted
- hands and fingers are soft
- neck is long
- use proper head movements
ALL THIS WHILE STILL IN OUR STARTING POSITIONS NOW DO ALL THAT WHILE MOVING AND LOOKING GORGEOUS. AND EFFORTLESS
You try holding your leg by your head without touching it and turning on the tips of your toes and wooden shoes and tell me ballet isn’t hard.
People always say “don’t be a ballerina” and “don’t be such a pussy”
when really ballerinas and vaginas are probably the most hardcore things
AND BALLERINAS WITH VAGINAS ARE JUST STRAIGHT UP METAL
SO DO NOT TELL ME BALLET IS FUCKING EASY AND NOT A REAL SPORT
Most ballerina’s are also known for dancing until their feet bleed, bandaging them up and getting back on with the show.
Dance in general is a lot harder than it looks. That’s the point of it, to make something incredibly difficult look effortless and graceful. Seriously, if you have never done any kind of dance, you should find a bare patch of floor and try to make falling down deliberately in slow motion look good. Then get up again without using your arms.
Ok calm down niggas, it’s just balle
