So, there is a certain assumption about ballerina's body-types (which in professional dancers is 9 times out of 10 pretty accurate). And I'm not saying that this is a negative thing - most of them are able to reach that without unhealthy practices. But I like to think that as adult beginners, we don't need to worry about portraying that image. Which is good. Because I don't. I mean, I'm relatively fit - but I am a far cry from being considered "svelte" or anyone worrying that I have an eating disorder. And I just ordered a chocolate milkshake from the diner across the street. Just wanted to put that out there in the universe.
Don't judge me!!
