THE BLACK SWAN TRUTHS
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.
