BALLET IS LIKE FOOTBALL. I DON'T UNDERSTAND A FOOTBALLER'S TECHNIQUE BUT I CAN SEE WHEN HE'S PLAYING BRILLIATLY. PEOPLE DON'T LIKE BALLET BECAUSE THEY THING THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND IT. ACTUALLY, THEY DO. IT'S THE MOST PRIMITIVE FORM OF APPEAL.

And just like that the week is almost over. On Fridays you can expect articles about ballet on Spectacle. We tip toe on pointe shoes into the weekend. Are you in?
