Figured this would fit into "everything else"

BuzzFeed has a tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek ode to "Center Stage" called "26 steps to becoming an amazing dancer as told by Center Stage"

Very useful, Jayne. Think about all the money ballet students will save in tuition fees! Not to mention all those boring hours in class. Posted Image

No. 15 -- the girl with waggling her hands and bent wrists -- reminded me of similar gestures in La Valse. To my amazement, I tried it and found that ... I can do it TOO. I can also wiggle my hips while keeping my arms over my head (the correct position for males).

It's a start. Thanks to you, I am seriously considering embarking on a ballet career. I may, however, have to read the article a few more more times before I can claim to be "amazing."
