Ballerinas are the most underrated athletes.
GUYS SHE IS SPINNING ON HER TOE.
ALL HER WEIGHT ON HER TOE.
THIS PERSON UNDERSTANDS BALLET <3
It’s actually pretty sad how ballerinas are portrayed. They’re always portrayed as dainty, girly, and dare I say fragile. In reality ballerinas are the most hardcore athletes ever.
They train for hours upon hours for weeks. Every practice they do is an intense workout almost to the scale of training for olympic athletes.
They have to be extremely precise, accurate, graceful, strong, disciplined, and flexible and the goal is to make it look easy.
The amount of dedication and gut it takes to be a ballerina is much higher than that of a football player.
There is so much more that I could say about this but I’m tired so I’ll leave it at that.
HELL YES. DANCING IS REALLY HARD OKAY
^yes to all of this!!
Fantastic new Amaluna tv spot
of shadow I have brought back to you:
this decay, this hope, this mouth-
ful of dirt, this poetry.
