Redefining what it means to have a "ballerina body"

"I felt that if I wanted to be successful as a ballet dancer, I needed to be as thin as possible." After overcoming an eating disorder, this ballerina is fighting to make ballet inclusive to dancers of all shapes and sizes.

    She is getting more coverage than 90% of skinny dancers. She doesn't seem 'oppressed' at all. It's not brave when virtually everyone supports you.

    Size doesn’t have anything to do with your strength or stamina or even agility. Unfortunately as a ballerina along with most dancing the more you weigh the more it’s going to break your joints down. I don’t think she’s going to have a long career.

    Fitness reflects health!! Gtfo. She's a whale, dude, beauty is not always in the eye of the beholder, try to be that fat of a gymnast who can still perform double layouts and aerials and all that. Or what about the bars, or the rings, or doing breakdancing moves like flares while eating next to no healthy food. Fattie!!!
