Funny Video Proves Ballet is Much Harder When You’re Feet Don’t Cooperate
I’ve been a dancer since I was 2 years old and I was also an assistant instructor for a time. I know the perils of not “getting it” even after hours of practice. It’s frustrating, especially when it seems so easy for everyone else. So I can relate; I can feel this little girls pain.
Watch as she is learning to do what is called ‘first position’ in ballet. She just can’t seem to get the ‘V’ stance without falling over. Sometimes if you add your arms it helps, not in this case. Finally, she just decides she’s going to manually move her feet to the right position just like the teacher did. Ahhh, but yet again, that doesn’t work either. What’s a ballerina to do?
I’m thinking we probably won’t see her on ‘Dancing With The Stars’. However, she gets an ‘A’ for effort and persistence.
