It’s not just bal­let, dance in gen­eral is a dif­fi­cult art form. Your body is asked to do things that are to­tally un­nat­u­ral, so blis­tered feet, bu­nions and con­stant in­juries are all just a part of life. I found Black Swan to be a hard movie to sit through – but the truth is that for clas­si­cal bal­let dancers the body and body im­age is still a huge is­sue due to the lines that are re­quired from the dancers. That’s why pro­fes­sional danc­ing is just eas­ier when you are nat­u­rally shaped a cer­tain way so you won’t have to re­sort to crazy di­ets.
