Dancers are creative artists and performance athletes working within a weight class and competitive environment. Meeting the desired aesthetics play an essential and important role in the life of dancers, who are constantly seeking for perfection in body composition, appearance and dance technique. Next to that, the dancer of the modern era is much more versatile trained. Dancers nowadays perform within various dance techniques at a very high level.
