Almost all of the girls in my class have a perfect ponche.
"Almost all the girls" is probably a lot less than you think it is.
I was so upset that "almost all the girls" in my class got to dance en pointe for our show, and I didn't. Then I realized that, "almost all the girls" was only about ONE-THIRD of the class!
(don't give up- and keep strecthing! )

Ballet is not a natural art form. There are very few people with the "right" body for ballet. Everyone else has to work their butts off for it. But, it can sometimes be done. Good training is critical, and a great work ethic and determination are pretty important too.
