Product Description:
Ballet School Video(VHS/DVD). The curtain rises... the crowd roars... the beautiful Prima Ballerina takes center stage. Itís a dream shared by little girls all over the world. But the reality can be very different: training from dawn to dusk six days a week; bleeding feet; crushed toes; no social life; and constant pressure to be thin, thin, thin. This program follows a year in the life of one of Britainís top dancing schools, the Central School of Ballet in London. It highlights the ambitions, frustrations, weight problems, and injuries of the stars of the future as it explores the rocky road to the top, from the nervous 16-year-old entering students still full of dreams to the 19-year-olds attempting to get their first jobs. Itís a grueling life, with a brutal training schedule and a constant battle with weight óonce a week the girls must enter their weight on a chart, with a visit to the nutritionist if they are getting too fat or too thin. By Sunday, the students are usually too exhausted to do anything but rest. The students remain enthusiastic but anything can happen at this school, where nothing less than perfection will do.
