Guest Jeujeucda Posted November 1, 2002 Report Share Posted November 1, 2002 I have noticed a strange thing. In all the pictures, videos, and public imagery of ballet, all the dancers always have flat bellies. At my school, that's mostly true of the little girls too. But the teens are a different story. Sometimes I arrive early and have a chance to watch the advanced students through the studio windows. Their technique is without doubt far superior to us adults, of course. You can tell they've had years of training already. However, many of them also have a very NOTICEABLE belly! From the front they look fine, even if their waistline isn't that "hourglass", but from the side, they have bellies. Their torso have the look of muscles, but overlaid with a layer of, well, I hate to say it, but a layer of fat. I'm wondering why, given they've had so much training. I've only done ballet for about a half year right now, but even I never had that belly look. In fact, I've already noticed a remarkable improvement in my muscle tone and body shape.
