A new name for ballet dancers?

Thanks for the link! I suspect that the sports reference is another attempt to reach out to a "broader audience". Yes, ballet is not sport, although as one with a foot in both camps, I sometimes think balletomanes have more in common with sports fans than either side cares to admit. :D

Well, it's better than "Buglesses". Bugless used to be a real hot name in the seventeenth century, and started out as "Bugloss" (a flowering herb) and a feminine name, but soon changed its spelling and became unisex. How PC of the seventeenth century!
