Ballet dancing is very hard work, and ballet dancers must always be fit. Like athletes, they must keep their bodies in good condition. Their muscles must be trained to perform difficult movements at any time. This requires that ballet dancers practice for several hours every day. Dancers must learn and rehearse their roles if they are to give a good performance. This takes a great deal of work because there are thousands of separate movements in a ballet, and these must be performed in time with the music. If many dancers must make the same moves together, they must practice hard to do them at exactly the same time. A person who wishes to become a ballet dancer must train for many years at a ballet school. Before performing in front of an audience, the dancers must spend years studying and practicing. Dancers learn different ways to hold their bodies and dozens of different movements. Most dancers begin studying ballet when they are very young.:

It makes a cocoon for the eggs which are laid in the soil. Earthworms have no eyes, but their skin is sensitive to light.:

In the middle of the table is a plate with a woman’s head on it. You don’t see her body. The head talks to you, but you don’t know whether you should believe your eyes or ears. You stare at the table, looking for the woman’s body. How could this be true? The answer is magic. “The Talking Head” is a famous magic trick. Very few people have ever guessed how it works.

But what you are seeing is a reflection of a front leg. You think you are seeing a whole table, but you are seeing only half. A woman is kneeling behind the mirror. Her head sticks out though a hole in the table and the plate. You are not really seeing a lone head. The body is just blocked from your eyes.
