I have an obsession with ballerinas. The type of obsession six year old girls have as they run around in tutus.
It turns into a much darker obsession as a nineteen year old then. I know how fucked the dance world is. I consider the gymnastics world to be worse than the dance world in general, but the ballet world is whole new world. I can only imagine how much worse my exercise obsession, self harm and eating disorder would be if I was in ballet.
It's just so beautiful. It's what I consider to be the ideal athlete. As a gymnast, I feel somewhat guilty saying this, but I've always loved the lean dance like gymnasts. Beautifully muscular, inner grace and power, and most of all; discipline and perfection.
