In a new video, dancers from the Washington Ballet show off their most difficult moves in slow motion. The Washington Post captured these graceful dance steps, showcasing not only the dancers' athleticism, but the beauty of ballet as well.
While the sign of a good dancer is making a piece look effortless, these moves are anything but. In the video, six professional performers from the Washington Ballet showcase a challenging move and explain how it is done and why is it difficult to do. From a 540 battement en rond to five double tours in a row, not only do these ballet dancers execute flawlessly, they also demonstrate incredible control as they come out of them, landing a perfectly held posed position.
