Ballet is very difficult. It requires an insane amount of muscle, balance, instruction, and time. Although it may look easy and beautiful, that is the simply the nature of ballet: to make something incredibly hard look easy. Most girl ballet dancers use pointe shoes. They hurt very bad and basically mess up your feet. After pointe classes my feet are red, soar, have blisters, have broken and bruised nails, sometimes bloody, and bunions develop. So think again if you think it is easy. So many injuries happen and a lot of strength training is needed to even stand on the tips of your toes and dance. Balance is one of the most important things about using pointe shoes since you balance all of your body weight on your toes. Dancers are most certainly athletes and I personally consider dance a sport I hope you do too. I didn't understand how painful and hard pointe was until about 2 years ago when I started myself. Thank you for participating and it is definitely hard.

I'm so tempted to be a douchebag and argue from solipsism.

Ballet is wonderful to watch but it must be so painful!. How much practice do you get per day?. How long did it take to start using point shoes?
