Gal Gadot's portrayal of Wonder Woman requires her to walk with conviction - long purposeful strides that acting alone cannot possibly achieve. Many of the stars below have had years of dance and specifically ballet, that has allowed them to perform these roles with conviction, and certainly a large part of achieving those big roles. The strength needed for many of these roles is achieved only through ballet, as it provides the appearance of strength and elegance in one.
Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Guardians of the Galaxy), Tom Holland (from Billy Elliot to Spiderman) Tatum Channing (from Step Up to Magic Mike) Charlize Theron (Joffrey Ballet to Atomic Blonde) Jennifer Garner (Michael Jackson's Thriller in 13 Going on 30) Ryan Gosling (Mickey Mouse Club to La La Land) Catherine Zeta Jones (Chicago)
Ballet may not be as exciting or fast flowing as some other dance forms, and it certainly isn't a quick fix. The many of years of training needed to achieve the subtlety and artistry required on stage gives companies with the reassurance that the individual is keen, hard working and committed. However, alongside other dance forms, it provides children with so many opportunities and attributes for employers to feel positive about, whether they become a team player, a team leader or the future Super Hero.
With persistence, the benefits will be so rewarding.
