      Most ballet dancers do not do other kinds of exercise, except for Pilates. For one thing, even a small injury can stop them performing, so they tend to steer clear of activities which can be hazardous, like hiking or skiing. For another thing, their schedule is so full of ballet classes, they don't have much time or energy left for other types of exercise.
