Before clicking the link I thought this was going to be about a new Grand Theft Auto game.

This seems relevant, although it takes place in Turkey and not Czechoslovakia, and features less music/dancing. Probably been featured previously.

I love the sole comment to the post:

If you have debilitating foot pain or a teacher who twists your ankle, it is time to find a different instructor ASAP. Stylised forms of dance such as classical ballet are not always going to be perfectly comfortable at all times, but they should not be painful. Any teacher who thinks otherwise does not know what s/he is doing.

Perhaps you have had experience with a poor instructor, and if so, I sympathise, but please do not go about spreading the erroneous and disparaging notion that pain is an integral part of correct ballet technique.

That was a nice instrumental version of the disco classic. Now, here's Boney M covering Neil Young. Enjoy.

I thought it was good wholesome entertainment. And those women were sensationally statuesque.

That's not part of any human culture I'm familiar with. Should have been used uncut for BSG.
