want a ballet body ?
That's simple ...
- Have a body ( preferably your own )
- Take class
Ergo you have a ballet body
No doubt as is typical for the time of year the snake oil sales persons will be trying to sell whatever form of exercise as magic way to 'improve' your body
Has ballet changed my body ? has it 'improved' it ? probably but that is down to hard work and time spent ... as would be the case with any form of physical activity
There's plenty so say that the almost fetishised views of the ' the ballet body' especially of the mid to late C20th are unhealthy and it's time to challenge the cis- het normative male gaze that dominated that time. Kathryn Morgan has had a lot of really good stuff to say about body image and mental health in dance on her you tube channel and elsewhere
