There are not enough portrayals of thick ballet dancers. This makes me very very happy.

this is awesome.


There are no thick ballet dancers because it’s not true to the art form, which sounds terrible and harsh, but…

> ” it’s not true to the art form”
bitch, u crazy.

actually i can see this being legit. Can you imagine them going into a pirouette or doing a graceful swan hop and not crushing the shit out of their ankles? If it did have a true art form the dancers would have a taste for pain and a short career in mind. 

that happens already doesn’t it? like for the ideal tiny thin dancers. it’s super harsh on anyone i would assume. and i can understand people who are lifted are at an advantage if they’re both short and light, but can’t they…write new ballet pieces that aren’t “classics” that don’t require women to be tiny and ethereal etc? 

reblogging for that main picture because if we’re gonna talk about dancing and fat people I am taking you all to the next Bihu festival and you all can shut the fuck up on the fat shaming when you see those gloriously fat aunties dance.
Also that’s “true to the artform” shit is actually terrible and harsh and needs to go.

Also you can look at images of ballet dancers before, say, the 60’s, and see a wide range of body types, even at performance-level. The emphasis on extraordinary thinness is super recent in ballet. So okay blah blah the art form whatever, lady.

ballet snobs can gtfo

Catty bitches like the girls above are why I was ashamed of trying to dance for the past two years. Well, too fucking bad if I do not fit your “ideal”. Why don’t you focus on your own form and technique and stop putting down others? Seriously, kiss my fat ass, which, in all honesty, won’t be fat that much longer. I do not “crush the shit out of my ankles”, but I will GLADLY crush the shit out of your face. 

^”but I will GLADLY crush the shit out of your face.” Shit. I love you.
