Personally, I think professional ballerinas are stronger than professional football players. This is due to the fact that, ballerinas require more skill and talent to perform their art. It requires more task and work as compared to football, when you look at the routine involved. It involves elegance; grace and they have to go through years of training. They also require discipline and strength, due to the physical demands involved.
I would say if ya can walk on just ur tip toes that is strength but can the take the tackle of a football player. Just saying the both are strong in their own ways but to compare who is stronger is a bit difficult.
It's difficult to measure strength. I would assume overall you have to be a stronger "person" to be in ballet but if it was a bar fight between linebacker and a ballerina... There's different meanings behind strength.
On the flip side some football players have to be very strong as well, training constantly, eating healthy, taking lots of blows, dealing with monumental amounts of pressure (Super Bowl or other important games), dealing with injuries etc
It depends on how you identify "strength." Ballerinas have a stronger "core", in that they are more flexible and graceful. The girls have stronger legs, and the men have strong legs *and* arms. They are all lean and muscular, and can maintain the same positions for long periods of time. Football players typically are larger; they are almost entirely upper-body muscle. They need to be able to move, and be agile, but their primary strength is in their ability to throw, catch, block, and tackle. It's less of a fine motor movement and more of a generalized/gross motor movement. However, *is* true that many football players take ballet to help improve their ability and agility on the field :) I would say that both are equally strong, but in very different ways <3
The kind of strength which ballet dancers exhibit is different than that typical of football players. Football players have the kind of strength which is developed through weight-lifting and exercise designed to allow them to, well, play optimal football. Dancers, on the other hand, need flexibility and a kind of endurance which allows them to dance two or three hours at a time, sometimes twice a day! Moreover, even on days when they perform, they must take classes at least a couple of hours daily! I once saw a team of football players attempt to follow a corps of ballerinas, doing everything the dancers did, over the course of a single day--and the football players only lasted about three hours!
Maybe their toes.....maybe their legs.... But I'm thinking an offensive lineman could pretty much chunk a ballerina in between the goal posts.these guys look normal on tv but when you get face to face with them they're freaking huge. Sorry
