One thing Flesh and Bone did right was hire real dancers to play the dancers -- no Black Swan fakery in this show. But did you notice that the longest dance sequence in the episode was not ballet but the striptease act? And we're supposed to believe a ballet director of a financially strapped company would risk his season by scrapping a tried-and-true ballet to commission a new one for an unknown dancer? A dancer he's seen only in rehearsal, without knowing whether she has the stamina to carry a ballet or not? A dancer with only six months of professional experience, and that was five years ago? Ballet dancers start training before their tenth birthdays, some as young as five. Then ten or fifteen years later, if they're lucky, they land a spot in the corps de ballet. Newbies don't get solos, and they certainly don't get new ballets to star in.
