Ballerina is an expression of art through dance. It tells a story through dance steps and is different from all other types of dances. It requires girls’ dance shoes to move effortlessly and are lightweight as well. In a stretch, a professional dancer practices up to four hours so that you can imagine their comfort level.

The dance was first performed during the Italian Renaissance in the 15th century. Pierina Legnani was the first female ballerina and awarded as the most notable ballerina in the world. Ballet is even more difficult than football because it requires so much stamina. Ballets can become interesting if watched with focus and interest.

Ballets teach how to bond with people you dance or work with, and also helps to stay in an excellent posture and fantastic stamina. Ballet is a type of dance which means it also enables you to get rid of any stress.
