Here's a video of a ballet. Incredibly beautiful.

“Nicole Ciapponi in Olivier Wevers new piece BWV1007”.

Ballet: How Do Ballet Dancers Dance on Tiptoe?

I always wondered, how do ballet dancers do those tiptoe? When they stand on tiptoe, how do their feet look exactly? is it just the big toe touching the ground? How is possible? What kinda basic training to do that?

The answer, lies in Pointe shoe, which is specially designed shoe with a little box in front.

“pointe shoe”

Thanks to Kiara Smythe in Second Life for the answer.
