Cheeky ballerinas

I went to a ballet recital recently and managed to get into backstage at the end to take a few pics, thanks to a family friend. What striked me about this photo taking session,  and seeing the same group of girls on stage earlier is the huge divide in the ballet world between performance (fantasty world created) and reality off stage.  In short, the girls were a picture of grace and poise moments before, but take them off stage and they are any awkward teenagers, grappling with over excited hormones and changing body shapes and condition, despite depicting perfect postures and dance's elegance. Surreal :)
