Ballerinas are the most underrated athletes.
GUYS SHE IS SPINNING ON HER TOE.
ALL HER WEIGHT ON HER TOE. 
HER TOE.
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 vagina’s are probably the most hardcore things
AND BALLERINAS WITH VAGINA’S 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.

ballerinas are fucking hardcore ok 

Ballerinas are fucking metal 

Just for clarity’s sake, the shoes are actually compacted cloth.  I mean, really, really freaking compacted.  So pretty much feels like wood against your toes, don’t go thinking it’s all soft and squishy.  But still.  Compacted cloth, not wood.  That’s part of the reason they wear out so fast.  Just about the time you FINALLY break in a pair of shoes, they wear out and you have to get new ones.

Okay dance (especially ballet) is like, above “sport” its more than just a sport! it combines artistry and rhythm and athleticism into one cohesive, musical spectacle thats a combination of discipline and release. ballet is the fucking most, okay!?
also can i just applaud this magnificent point:
