Being a ballerina requires an insane level of dedication and flexibility.

People work for decades from the time they're small children in order to achieve the level of bend in their feet it takes to pull off some of the most intense moves ballet has to offer. If you've never actually taken a look at a ballerina's feet, though, you might be surprised to see just how extreme their stretching abilities really are. It's both fascinating and unsettling at the same time. Don't get what I mean? Take a look at the videos below.

The arch she creates is basically unreal and comes from years of practice.
