Ballet is elegant and graceful, widely associated with rake-thin girls and general snobbishness, but the goth and punk scenes are reclaiming this form of dance and labeling it as alternative ballet.
Mookychick.com offers insight into the world of dance through alternative eyes. The site states that ballet is accessible to everyone regardless of monetary restrictions, body type and gender.
Dita Von Teese is also mentioned to be a trained ballerina, proving there is more to ballet than the stereotypical ballerina.
