We set up this site to support and encourage young men who do ballet
and demystify the world of ballet for those who don't.

Report: "Physiological profiles of young boys training in ballet"

In 1988, three Finnish doctors studied the effects of ballet training on boys' physiology. Their report was published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. It can be read here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1478711/

This is an academic article but the conclusion is worth noting: that young men with ballet training show "explosive strength and mechanical power".
