History of distorted body ideals?

Recommended Posts


Lady Elle - I went back to the original post. Yes, it is "distorted view" or image that was written in the original post.


I just wanted to add that my daughter's best friend has the exact body type I have described as Balanchine's preference, based on many articles I have read, When looking at both her parents, you can see it is definitly in her genes.She is beautiful, graceful and a strong technical dancer in many ways. But as all dancers have things they need to work on, she definitly struggles with controlling those long limbs.


degasgirl - Thank you for that second on seeing various body types in the current ballet world.
