If I attempted this, it would be life altering, and not in a good way.

Unfortunately this will also be life altering for her.

Ballerinas pay a heavy price physically. Their feet especially.

Don't wanna see her feet without the "shoes".

Nothing much to see there. Just some bulky bone spurs, bunions, deformed toes, wiped out toenails, chronic skin discolorations and some fresh bruises. That’s it.

this is so true. i never made it to this level and my feet are still fucked from doing ballet as a kid

51

u/c_girl_108 Sep 24 '22

Same here! I only did it for 10 years. Almost 20 years after I stopped my feet are still jacked up.

I was standing in the sand over the summer, and my cousin who I never see looked down at my feet and went “hmm your feet are still fucked up from ballet huh?” LIKE DONT POINT IT OUT OMG

53

u/UndeadBatRat Sep 24 '22

My first thought was, "no wonder why ballerinas end up with mangled ankles." Jesus Christ, this makes me SO glad my mom wouldn't let me pursue ballet as a kid.

I read recently Michael Jackson's feet were wreaked from doing this sort of thing. Contributed to his death, in fact.

u/turdpimpin Sep 24 '22

As in he was in constant pain and had to be medicated for the pain which then led to his death because he was over medicated?

u/slipperyShoesss Sep 24 '22

That's what the article said, yeah. Apparently Reddit disapproves lol.

It makes sense though, that has to take a toll. I think too he may have still had pain from when he caught fire making that Pepsi commercial.

u/ElleRyder68 Sep 24 '22

Can confirm. My daughter in the last 2 yrs had major reconstructive surgery on both feet, due to a congenital defect where the ball of her foot was fusing, and restricting mobility and flexibility in her feet & toes. She had her MTP completely rebuilt, titanium rods in both big toes, & 2nd toe on left, plate and screws to hold it together. She is a ballerina as her main career. These issues had nothing to do with dance. Surgeon was absolutely shocked and she just said she thought her feet hurt because dance and that was normal. She's 27. She's 3 months out of her last surgery and walking. The pain tolerance for their feet is inhuman.

u/kmson7 Sep 24 '22

Technically, she only needed to be in that position for a fraction of a second.

We imagine her holding it for 5 to 10 seconds. It's a still. We don't know.

u/r_a_d_ Sep 24 '22

For me it would have only taken a fracture of an ankle.

u/LderG Sep 24 '22 edited Sep 24 '22

Yeah. Considering that her center of mass is way behind where her feet touch the ground, she couldn't possibly hold this position.

That and it looks like her center of balance is behind her feet. No amount of strength will let you defy physics.

She’s not balanced right now. Most of her weight is to the right of her toes. She can’t hold this position.

There are a lot of pictures with similar poses and the dancers always only hold them for a second before falling.

u/_Connor Sep 24 '22 edited Sep 24 '22

Yeah, this isn't real. It's not possible.

She was likely in that position for 0.01 seconds with a camera taking rolling shots, and the best one was picked. The implication that she's able to hold this position isn't true.

20

u/Daseinen Sep 24 '22

Totally agree. Draw a line perpendicular to the ground from where her strong feet touch the ground. There’s no way that half of her mass is on either side of that line. Therefore, she falls backward.

5

u/WordFumbler Sep 24 '22

Right, it’s not even that she held this for a fraction of a second: She was definitely in motion.

Now I’m not saying I looked up her Instagram after seeing this post (OP spelled her name wrong btw: it’s Kylie Shea), but let’s just say I somehow ended up there. Anyway, I’m not into feet, but among all the more interesting photos on her page there were a few pictures of her feet, and they looked… normal.

u/NeoGreendawg Sep 24 '22

And I’m not calling you a horny chap but thanks for doing the “research”. 🤣

I would have expected her feet to look like either sausages or minced meat… It just goes to show… You can’t judge a foot by how incredibly painful it looks or how she seems to have no toes in this photo.

Hmm, I know she does this sort of thing and I don't want to detract from her amazing skills, but I think this may have been edited for this pose.

Oh grammar god please forgive me for I am about to sin by correcting someone else’s grammar.

It is unusual to use strength twice in this context because it is redundant. ‘Strength of her foot’ or ‘her foot strength’ both work on their own. In fact it actually creates more confusion as you are attributing ‘strength’ to ‘her foot strength’ rather than to her or her foot.

I call nope. Notice how you can see some of her right arm just below the forearm of the left arm. Yet you cannot see any part of her right leg/foot. And her shadow has completely been edited away except for a little bit in front of her left foot. She should have a shadow on the ground somewhere based on the shadows her own body is making on her legs and torso. Still a cool photo but it’s heavily and liberally edited.

Simple physics says this is impossible. It does not matter how much strength you have.

Simply put, your centre of mass cannot be outside the point of contact with the floor. No amount of strength can overcome this. As soon as this occurs, you fall. Period.

This photo is either Photoshop or a single frame from a video.

Worth mentioning that she probably weighs ~50 kg. It’s like with Gymnasts. Not only are they well trained, but they must also have the optimal build. No way a 6ft person of 80 kg is gonna pull that off, no matter how strong they are.

u/Dysan27 Sep 24 '22

Her foot strength is so impressive she is defying Physics!

Seriously go straight up from her toes. Most of her bodyweight is on the right. Doesn't matter how strong she is, she'd not balanced and would be tipping over.
