From the group's website:
Bodiography holds a standard for educational excellence to provide a performance outlet for college educated professional dancers of various athletic body types with an emphasis on the aesthetic of the technique, rather than the aesthetic of the body.
And from the Baltimore Sun's article:
At 5-foot-5 and 125 pounds, Caruso says she's pleased she's been able to create a company "that celebrates the beauty of the athletic, healthy body. We don't worry about weight, we worry about our strength and our technique, our artistry and our quality of our work.
"Ballet dancers shouldn't have to give up their art because they can't fit into that classical mold," she says. "They shouldn't have to transition into modern dance if ballet is their passion."
What do you think? Is it possible to separate the aesthetic of the technique from the aesthetic of the body in ballet?
