Ten reasons ballet is the best...
10. it keeps you in shape
9. you look pretty doing it
8. everyone is in awe of you
7. you get to retire at age 35
6. no one complains if you're anorexic(just kidding! eat! eat!)
5. when you don't have time for a pedicure, you can just put on some bandaids and talk about how pointe kills your feet; everyone suddenly thinks you're way cool, instead of lazy for having chipped polish
4. you get to walk around in skimpy clothes, and just say you're getting ready for dance early
3. you have a very good excuse for not playing a sport!
2. you don't have to work at building a positive self-image, since teachers and coreographers tear it down anyway
1. you have a good excuse for flaking out on everything! just call it "artistic temperment!"
