General opinion about ballet?

This question is more to the non-dancing crowd, but all are welcome to share their opinion. So anyways, do you feel that ballet is, I don't know... not cool or preppy? I am a ballet dancer and of course my friends and family think it is cool but I was just interested in seeing what other opinions are of it. Sometimes it seems as though people think it is boring or not as cool as jazz or hip hop even though I love it because it is an art and a sport, but I wanted to see what the general opinion was out of curiosity. Thanks in advance for your comments!

    Ballet has lengthy been formal, depending and clever. an invaluable variety of the overall public adventure Ballet as a performance paintings. I agree that the nationally televised dancing competitions have further yet another layer to what the first public accepts as performance paintings? in addition, the music video clips have replaced the concepts of what the first public accepts as "dancing." Ballet represents existence-lengthy pastime and careers for most persons; notwithstanding, many extra human beings extra useful relate to different sorts of dancing, fairly social dancing. visit ny on a Saturday nighttime even as the ballet is appearing and each seat will be occupied via human beings staring at the performance. On that similar nighttime you could pass to thousands of golf equipment and see thousands of folk surely dancing with one yet another. I tutor regret for no longer answering your question quickly. I only opt to discuss that there are a range of of added social dancers than there are performance or aggressive dancers. BTW, tremendous question!
