here are a few other fun ballet facts:
- a prima ballerina can complete 32 fouette turns while staying in the exact same spot on the floor.
- the pain threshold of ballerinas to non-ballerinas is 3:1.
- it can take 60-90 hours to make a professional-grade tutu.
in other ballet-related news, i started watching flesh and bone this week and boy is it intense! the story line is a bit much, but the dancing is lovely to watch. looking forward to seeing where the series goes.
