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.

Finally! People who get it!

I reblogged this a while back before but I will reblog it again because of how much it drips with truth.

I once attended a ballet school where they made us dance for ninety minutes in a room with no heating in winter, gave us five minutes to eat, then another hour and a half with a professional doing strict exercises. I was twelve. There was also a rule in my ballet class when doing allegro (jumping), that if one person stopped jumping, then entire class would have to repeat it all. My feet were dead.

tumblr get it!

You guys don’t understand how much I appreciate this post. I train 30 hours a week only to be called weak and dainty. I love you guys. Thank you for understanding!
