Is it impossible to find the word “Toughie” and “Tutu” in the same statement? We might have you fooled. That is the idea when it comes to ballet. If we master strength after years of hard work we can then apply grace and control that is seemingly effortless. In fact, don’t  be surprised to find the “tough guy,” football Toughies In Tutus, Enforced Archplayer in ballet, developing their control and building their center. Ballet requires power, stamina, and precision. Behind the grace there is a lot of commitment and tears of which these dancers truly earn the title: ‘Toughies In Tutus.’

I came across this article today and noticed yet another compassionate ‘Mover‘ in Mumbai, Maharashtra India. The article reads:

Of the older girls, Ashrafi Ginwalla (20) teaches at the school and Annabelle Haydon Venkat (21) independently teaches little girls the basics of ballet. Venkat has been training with Dallas since age eight and takes the dance-form very seriously. She even sticks to “a no-wheat, no-dairy vegan diet that’s designed by dietician Vijaya Venkat to boost energy levels.” (source)

Don’t forget our ‘Essentials‘ page with cruelty free apparel for compassionate ‘Movers.’
