The Feet of a Female Ballet Dancer
As a dancer, I think that ballerinas have beautiful feet. However, to a non-dancer, all that is seen is a distorted and unnatural-looking foot.
In some ways they are ugly because of the extreme of work they do. The unnatural pointe work also takes its toll- not only on the skin, with blisters and wounds, but also with the bones, with stress fractures and bone spurs.
