Falling Into Ballet

I’m convinced that if I had taken ballet as a child I would be able to turn any stumble into a pirouette or something else equally amazing. Unfortunately, I’m too tall, although I do have a nice natural first position.

  1. LOL, love the cartoon! Well all I know is I fall at a moments notice, because of old age.

    I took ballet as a kid, but it didn’t make me into any less of a klutz, lol.

    Guys have a version of this called “the action roll” where any blundering fall is covered up by a cat-like roll worthy of celluloid. I usually just fall harder, but with more pizazz. 🙂

    that looked graceful enough to me 🙂

    That’s a great concept. I think I might start stalking some ballerinas and tossing banana peels in front of them just to see whether or not the ballet fall is a real thing.


  6. Uh, I’m a full-time ballet teacher and graduate of Canada’s National Ballet School. So, I can tell that: 1) tall dancers are IT right now, and 2) dancers are terribly clumsy when not dancing – because we use up our daily grace allowance when in the studio. That’s science.

    That being said, you are right. We fall in the most spectacular ways.

    Also, I’d re-think the banana peel thing. We’re hungry, and we’ve got nuthin’ to lose.

    I’m not the only one?!?! After reading several of your posts, I’m convinced we were separated at birth… or are clones of each other.
