Ballet typically requires plenty of hard work, finesse and a great sense of timing – whether for the most minimal pirouette or a hugely complicated routine. Those who manage to perfect it will rightly feel a great sense of accomplishment, but those who excel might wonder if they're among the best dancers around.
