She's got all these rehearsals and I'm laying on my bed too lazy to get up to pee right now

I read that professional ballet dancers make somewhere around 30-35k a year. Why do they get paid so little? They train their whole lives, push their bodies to the brink of limitation, and have to be perfect and elegant while performing in front of an audience. You would think they would at least make 100k. I know people will say they are doing what they love but, damn, that's no money at all. You might as well work an office job and make like 50k or something. I would be pissed if I was a ballerina and people like Kim K makes millions while doing absolutely nothing!

Finally one girl, who is eating healthy and being healthy, started ballet when she was 10!! Everyone start at like 3 or 4... I love this girl...

it's such a shame to see how hard ballerinas work, how fatiguing it is on the body, working longer hours and more days than most occupations, physical at that, and still come on stage and look so graceful. but still get paid so little. I know they do it because it's what they love but it's so unfortunate that they only make what they do.

Just because they don't video her eating doesn't mean she is anorexic. They didn't video her peeing, but that doesn't mean she doesn't pee.

Damn - these girls have to work HARD. I always thought they were a bunch of Little Princesses ... but that clearly ain't so. Not much room for a personal life.

damn. seeing her do so much so long, and still be able to keep such a lovely composure and speak so gently is really amazing. alls i really know about ballet is how painful it is, but everything she does looks so perfect and easy... she's really an inspiring person

Ballet is not a job it's a lifestyle. She has no time for anything else in her life. I hope the salaries are sufficient.

This video was released about the time she got promoted to First Soloist and this is probably by far one of the most watched video on their channel and it's sad to say that nothing much has changed. She gave so much for the company (15 years in the company!) and is very well loved performer who never fails to deliever but there's no reason why she hasn't been promoted to Principal yet. Kevin O'Hare has promoted really fantastic people to Principal but it makes me wonder why he has passed her year after year.

She sounds both British and Japanese. Very cute and she dances very well. These dancers are some of the best athletes in the world. Bravo!

I am 50 and began ballet a few weeks so fulfilling a dream after years in bodybuilding. Classical ballet is so elegant x

Now, I'm not professional or anything, but of course she ate during the day. If you have such a hard schedule, you have to eat or you'll pass out...And after what we see, she was perfectly fine, just a bit tired. :)
