It is possible to say that someone is a dancer just by looking at them?
Some would say yes, others would say not, yet, if the question is posed to a dancer, her answer is a solid yes.
Dancers recognize themselves by their body language also by their legs; they are usually very turned out. Furthermore, they sense at a glance what they share: the notion that their body is their workspace. The anxiety of the moment before a presentation. The frustration of not being able to execute their art to the point of perfection. As well as, the understanding, from an early age, that if they do not learn to follow strict routines and to silence physical pain, they are better off. And finally, a dancer never says before executing: “break a leg”
