Sometimes I wonder if a horror story called Brave Ballerinas would do that well.
You kind of have to ask the question - what exactly would the ballerina do that was brave?
I don't think standing on your toes for extended periods of time is brave.
Maybe if you're fat it would be considered brave that you are wearing one of those leotards. Maybe just foolish.
If you were a brave ballerina, would you get a reward for being brave, maybe a ticker tape parade? I don't think they have ticker tape parades anymore. The Romanians always made the best ticker tape, but they stopped making it in the 70s.
