Ballerinas are always lovely. Guess that’s because they are ballerinas. In those dresses with those graceful moves. At what cost? I’m told they do things that the body was never supposed to do. That’s because they are ballerinas. Giving the music a physical substance. Making the music alive with their toes and their legs and their arms and their complete bodies. Sailing across the floor as if the floor was water. A calmness at first. Then their bodies turn the water into a sea and then a sea of storms. Faster and faster they move. Their whole bodies telling a story. These dancers creating magic with their bodies as if they were magicians. Their arms rising and falling. Then the sea calms. The dancers make for shore and become beach bathers as they fall on the floor, returning to what has changed from water to a wooden stage. Ballerinas are always lovely.

  1. Lovely post it made me smile. It’s wonderful to dance, ballet and lyric contemporary are my favourites, I have two black toe nails from my last two hour ballet class I forget I don’t go as often as I did as a child 😀 and overdo it.

  2. My daughter likes to dance, so I had to read this one. She says she’s always happy when she’s dancing – I’d say that’s well wroth the occasional sore foot!
