Ballet, ballet, ballet… Not the most meaningful art but the most graceful. It’s cloaked in myths about utterly strict discipline, about incredible working capacity of fragile ballerinas… They seem to be aliens indeed. And they are really different.

Girls are all so pretty
It’s not easy to enter the school, competiton is high.
