Big, Beautiful Dancers

Is this ballet? I asked myself after watching a video clip of Cuban dance company Danza Voluminosa (Voluminous Dance), whose dancers were 23 to 41 years old and weighing more than 200 pounds. The group was formed in 1996 by Juan Miguel Mas, now a director and choreographer. She said she redefined the aesthetics of beauty and raised awareness of the heavy-duty people. "Although we are fat and dancing, we are against obesity, we are constantly trying to lose weight," said Mr Ma, who weighed 300 pounds. This statement has sparked outrage among certain obesity claimants whose statements are self-denying. To me that didn't happen. Of course it can be confidence and enjoy great body beauty while still realizing that health may be better for losing weight.

What I'm about to write is not a criticism of Danza Voluminose or any of the other companies with overweight dancers. The number of such groups is growing.

Another Big Dance dance was founded in 1993 in Victoria, BC, Canada with 10 great dancers and choreographer Lynda Raino. They were well received by the audience but now the number of dancers is declining. Raino has met many great women in her area but only in her 20s and 30s who can dance. She said, "That's a shame because young women will have decades to enjoy the art form. At about 50 women are more comfortable in their bodies, and easier to get out of the classroom, but they begin to harden. To go, like the back and hips. People should start young, especially if they want to do it. "

Helen Rezanowich is a program assistant in women's studies at Universityof Victoria. "I was trying to go to a big dance class but there was so much on my face, I wasn't ready to see it. At that moment, even watching a little girl leave the classroom before I was loud and the dance room Tied in a mirror I didn't want to admit that I was a person and I'm 51 and more comfortable with my size. "

The Great Ballet was founded in 1994 by choreographer Evgeny Panfilov. The aim of the company is to transform the concept of great dancers and agility. He also wants to prove that a non-trained beginner can meet professional standards.

Lower weight limits have risen to more than 238 pounds. Any dancer who falls under this weight is offered the opportunity to regain extra pounds with the advice of a nutritionist. If they don't want to do this, they have to give their place to other bigger dancers. "They have to eat and eat and eat," said Natalia Liensky, the company's director. The group consisted of sixteen large women aged between 19 and 28 who had undergone professional dance training and six regular-size male dancers. They all have day jobs and include doctors, nurses and engineers. The dancers perform at the point and at the point and perform pirouttes and plies. Dancers can also do fractions. In some shows female dancers are drawn by male dancers - though it takes four men to get a woman on the air.

In an unusual move, Russian government Vladamir Putin demanded Bolshoi Ballet return a dancer who was rejected for allegedly too heavy and difficult for the couple to lift.

Marina Wolf Ahmad is the director and founder of Big Moves one of the few organizations in the world dedicated to getting all kinds of bodies to dance classes and to the stage. Marina says "There is a need to offer healing, a supportive space for these women to return to dance, and there is a need to start working towards youth programs that support dance teachers to accept all the sizes that come through their classes - right Now, dance is psychologically inaccessible to most people. The Big Movement will take on all shapes, all sizes as you come to practice, getting better and really dedicated to dancing. Not just fat people - all sizes. " Big Move companies have been established in many parts of the United States.

I really believe that everyone needs to dance, but I have a problem with the fat dancers doing classical ballet. This is a form of dance where it is almost impossible for a woman who takes this form of dance in adulthood to excel. They can't handle the technical challenges. Although both dancers and spectators may enjoy the humorous interpretation of this classic ballet, it is not enough. They need to have the same technique as any other performer. In addition ballet as a style is about resisting gravity light and easy.

All the dances look better when the choreography, music, costume and most importantly, the dancers' bodies complement each other. Fat women look very pretty when dancing like those from the Middle East and some forms of African dance. In this style the larger hips and breasts emphasize the connection of the dance world and feel the fullness of life and life. The thin woman doing "belly dancing" didn't show that dance was for her best. I also remember a Middle Eastern dance workshop attended by a fat young woman. She moved with grace and expression pressed by her many curves. She overcame us all.

Larger percentages are aware of the growing health hazards of obesity in many parts of the world. Obesity is defined as 20% or more of your ideal weight. Childhood obesity is a major cause of abnormal growth acceleration. Fat girls often start menstruation early and through early menopause. This problem in boys can lead to premature and late puberty. Gynecomastia (male excessive breast development) is another common problem.

Adult obesity is a leading cause of several forms of ailments such as heart disease, stocks, diabetes mellitus, gall bladder, high blood pressure and cancer. Gout and in women reproductive disorders are common, such as knee and spinal osteoarthritis in both sexes. Every extra pound that a person gains is four times the pressure on their knees.

What is clear is that most groups of dancers are overly discriminatory. A dancer loses weight and she exits the troupe the same way that some of the dancers who put on weight are asked to leave - both represent extreme views.

It clearly does not help the dancers to encourage them to put on weight again after they have lost weight by experiencing the health benefits of dance. The human body is clearly not designed to carry a large amount of excess weight for a lifetime and to stay healthy.

Just as an anorexic image is unhealthy that leads to physical and psychological problems as well as overweight dancers. There needs to be a happy medium. I am very pleased that the extra dancers prove that they can be a lively, graceful, sensitive and aesthetically pleasing artist who gives their audience a thrill. In many cases dance has brought a sense of self-esteem and confidence to those who did not have this quality.

I have a full agreement with Marina Wolf Ahmad that aims to make everyone dance inclusive and everyone dance together. I'm not happy to see any of the groups mentioned above directly. Therefore, it would be wrong for me to make any comments on the reporting techniques of any company. All of my statements are general and not specific to any company in particular. Let us always allow dance to help us change people's attitudes and beliefs!

I ask the fat dancer who lost weight to refuse to dance with the company, but to continue to dance the class and lose weight. This is the path to long-term health and fitness. Does anyone know about obese people who have reached puberty?
