The Beauty of Ballet
One of the few items that truly separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom, revealing the human spirit and soul, is art. In our 21st century cultural landscape, art is a degraded idea, made ugly by an intellectual crowd too happy to just be considered cool and far to open to any amateur. The multicultural crowd slides into forms, where audiences are told alien looking garbage is on par with Rembrandt. We live in a society where simple representations of beach babe beauty creates online firestorms and real life bomb threats from feminists. How do you fight that or where can you still find art that reaches for the heights of human beauty? Watch ballet.
