Voluptuous ballerina Misty Copeland

I found this article (thank you, Shirin and FB) about so-called curvy ballerina. I found this picture of her just fantastic - beautiful, full of grace and strength.

Here is quoted article: Curvy Ballerina Misty Copeland Talks Body Image
I found her story amazingly couriging and beautiful - come to ballet at age 13 (very rare in classic ballet world), being curvy and black.
If you googel her or other dancers mentioned in that article - this is fantastic gallery of perfect beautiful bodies you will see.

And it is all very very far from so-called steal-swans ballerinas - Russian school, white, highly-trained, tiny, thin, skinny. Starting from age 3, 7 considered far too late. Swet, tears and blood and starving. I always thought it is extreme in Russia already, but when I've seen clips from China children trainings for ballet and gymnastics - way to go...
