A form of dance that requires thorough use of technique. Ballet dancers must have this technique and a great deal of strength to be able to do the steps, but also must look graceful and expressive at the same time. Ignorant people do not appreciate the strength and beauty of this high art.
ballet teacher "i want to see you be more expressive with your face"
student "okay, yeah, i was just concentrating on everything else"
ballet teacher "when you're more familiar with the steps it will be easier for you"

An incredibly difficult SPORT that most people do not believe is a sport. Ballet requires a great level of dedication and discipline. When ballet dancers reach a certain level of advancement, the begin to dance en pointe, or on pointe shoes, which are shoes with a very stiff toe so the dancer can be supported when standing on her/his toes. Ballet is known to the majority of people as a "sissy" thing, something that only girly-girls and gay men do. Lots of rude and misinformed people mock ballet dancers by prancing around and pretending to wear a tutu. In fact, it has been proven that ballet boosts coordination and even IQ. It is actually much harder that football. There are a great many steps and technicalities to each move; you have to maintain a turnout and pointed feet. Boys/men often do lots of lifting, but they also dance, too. In very professional companies there is the corphee who is the leader of the corps de ballet (they ensemble dancers) and there is the prima ballerina who is the highest dancer there is in a company. All professional dancers must have huge amounts of strength, flexibility, and poise. The key to being a successful ballerina (in addition to have memorized all the steps, being flexible and strong, being dedicated, etc.) is to be able to mask your HUGE effort and make it look easy.
Football Player: You are so gay, you take ballet and you are a boy and you wear tights! Sissy! *imitates ballet badly*
Male Ballet Dancer:...well... It's actually pretty hard...
Ballet Teacher: *appears* Ok, let's have 25 grand battements on each side and then eight plie-double-pirouettes at the barre, then adagio at the center with promenade-plie-lift-to-attitude-plie-bring-to-passe-balance...
Football Player: *runs away*
Male Ballet dancer & Ballerinas: *do combination perfectly*

I am not saying that all football players act that way, I'm just stating that that is a common sterotype.

an extremely rigorious but fun and rewarding SPORT. generaly stereotyped by dancing on toes, the color pink, tutus, spinning around, and being graceful. i say it is characterized by bloody feet, sore muscles, hard work, lots of sweat, falling on you butt(by mistake of course), fond memories of performing, excitement of sharing something you love with an audience.
I take a ballet class 6 days of the week.

Ballet makes me very tired.

I love dancing ballet.

The closest one can get to flying.
"My soul is in the sky."
-William Shakespeare

Person: Why do you love ballet so much, if your feet look like THAT?
Dancer: It's as close as one can get to flying.

The highest sense of dancing. The highest sense of art in general. Movements made by beautiful dancers with elegance and poise.
