I hate ballet even though some of the broads are hot.

This is just like that movie Black Swan where none of the actresses could dance and didn't look like dancers and then there was a stabbing at the end that didn't make any sense.

I HATED THAT farkING MOVIE.

It's ballet, so Sharp Knees is a requirement.

Wonderful achievement

beauty and grace

Happy Easter all

WhyteRaven74: Ah the Bolshoi Eating Disorder Academy.


So true! Their leg muscles looked so underdeveloped (for ballet dancers) and their moves so sluggish that it seemed miraculous that they got through the entire performance at all.

Did she immediately defect to the United States or am I showing my age here?
 
2012-04-08 09:14:55 AM
So, she was 14 when she moved, alone, to Russia? WTF?

Alls I knows is that those girls are CRAZY Flexable in the bedroom. Good times indeed.

Yeah it is pretty tedious. And those "broads" are like twelve.

If you ever get a chance hang out in the Lincoln Center elevators during rehearsals. If you time it right the doors will open and about 60 of those ballerinas will flood inside like that scene from Dawn of The Dead. But instead of zombies it's four-foot tall anorexic teenagers.

BTW. West Side Story is a great ballet if you ever want to try again.

There was an article in the New York Times last year about a few American kids who went to the Bolshoi Academy, and the boy in the group had a teacher saying he needed to lose muscle here, gain it there and then there were comments about the girls. There's no need for any of that but the Bolshoi insists on it.

Congratulations to her; she earned it. My sister has a degree in dance. The 10-hour-days are no exaggeration. My sister used to take a four-hour block of ballet, followed by a four-hour block of Jazz ballet, THEN a break, then a two-hour block of Modern dance.

The Ballet students would rosin their shoes, and leave patches of rosin on the floor, then the Jazz students would dance barefoot in the same studio. If you hit a patch of rosin while doing a spin, you'll spin the ball of your foot right off. The solution? Hobble over to your equipment bag, take out your SuperGlue, glue your foot back together, and DANCE. If you think your football team is in shape, let 'em take a few dance classes.

Heh.


We have some super glue in my school's bass storage room just in case one of us has a callus break before we have to play.

Good to see we aren't the only ones that use that stuff.

That's it. I've already booked airfare to JFK.

I dunno. Too much finger snappin' and not enough switchblade flickin'.

Yup. You know. A lot of pitchers use it for calluses that split from throwing curve balls. You do what you gotta. Bee propolis is good for healing cracks also.

That's nice, except that West Side Story is in no way shape or form a ballet. That's like saying "If you want to give opera a try, listen to the middle section of Bohemian Rhapsody".

Sorry, you either like ballet (and opera) for what it is, or you don't. It's just pathetic to see opera companies try to market it as something the cool kids are doing, it's just sad.

I wonder, because of the tremendous exertion, do ballet dancers fart during some of the more athletic moves and jumps and such?


/In my mind, they do. Constantly.

Hey, it's the Big Ballet dance troupe! If she can go en pointe like that, more power to her.

Interrupted Infinitum: super


Also useful for guitarists if you snip too close with the fingernail clippers and the nail separates from the bed. Oh so painful when you play because fingering the fretboard causes the bed to pull away even more.

Solution? Squirt a drop of superglue in there. Hurts like heck for about a second, and then sweet sweet relief ensues. It's just enough to keep the bed from pulling away while you play, and it allows the still-attached portion of the nail bed to heal and grow out.

They really should market that stuff to the performing arts crowd. I know there's a variant that's used in surgery, so it's probably medically safe (at least that version of it is, anyway)
