Ballet is a beautiful art form. We look from darkness of the auditorium as easily and gracefully dancers of ballet create magic on a scene. It is only a performance for us. But for dancers the ballet is a meaning of life and hard work. What price does a ballerina achieve such perfection?
Girls, for example, are beginning to prepare for the ballet with kindergarten age. Life in Ballet School consists of regular exercise, stretch, strict diets and injuries. Muscles of the ballerina’s legs have to be strong. Differently it will be impossible to hold all her weight on the pointe-shoes. That is a high price for the chance to dance at the theater in silk pink pointe-shoes, beautiful lush skirts and give people a graceful beauty. So beauty requires sacrifice.
