Just got back from watching Black Swan. I wish I could write something about the grace and the weightlessness of ballet, but truth be told, I find it totally unappealing, always have done. It's so forced and restrained, those creepy little scuttling steps and those skinny stick girls who look so very unhappy.

Give me curves and passionate dance moves! Wide flowing dresses and sizzling ecstasy! None of that plié and jeté crap. Aaand I'm sure someone will come along and say "you've not seen real ballet yet! It's full of passion!" Yeah yeah, whatever, I still don't like it.
