I was always amazed by the physical abilities of dancers - to make everything look easy and artistic (instead of challenging and physical), the limits have to be moved far higher than the demand. And these moves are at least demanding...
I had some experience with various kind of sports (I was also fencing on a competitive level until age of 18; and I have seen many active sportsmen / women) - and I have to admit, ballet is one of the toughest challenges I have ever seen.
This gallery is my visual appreciation for their fitness and physical strength, as well as their ability to perfectly control the body.
