Ballet Dancers in Everyday Situations!

September 23, 2013 in Art, Performance

Following on from our extremely successful blog post about a ballet dancer that danced en pointe on knife shoes on a piano (see HERE), it’s quite clear that an ordinary day as a ballet dancer is never ordinary.

Ever wonder what a ballet dancer does on their downtime? With all of those muscles toned and trained for high flying leaps, jumps, and flips, you have to wonder how they deal with the everyday. Why get up for the TV remote when you can expertly extend across the room to grab with it ease and style? Thanks to photographer Jordan Matter we can now see the ordinary life of such acrobatic wonders in his album titled ‘Dancers Among Us.” Take a look at some photos below to see just how regular situations change into wondrous displays of physical perfection when you live the life of a ballet dancer.
