Dance Blog, Oct 2017: Can Ballet Be A Sport?


This is a section from my last post that I wanted to bring to your attention and get your point of view.

A GOOD DANCE DEBATE

Can Ballet be a sport?

This video follows for a day ballerina Yuhui Choe, a soloist from the Royal Ballet. All this hard work to perform... Surely our elite should have more opportunities when they reach the top of their game.

We have amazing and talented dancers that work harder than athletes so why not present them in a sporting environment. This will not diminish the performance of ballet but prove that dancers can be athletes as well as artistes. It can provide another avenue for them to achieve... with pay.

My April blog on Dancer Vs Athletes outlines the comparisons.
