In this video by the Washington Post, dancers from The Washington Ballet are filmed as they execute their most difficult dance moves, which the dancers explain in voiceover. The viewer is shown the moves in slow motion, which is a great way to better illustrate the impressive athletic feats that ballet dancers perform regularly.

I don't see any implication of "good." More, to counter the impression of ballet dancing being a delicate and dainty activity rather than one as challenging and grueling as any.

I suppose you are strongly opposed to contact sports where the thinly disguised goal is injury to opponents. Certainly intimidation through infliction of pain. That's good?

I knew a foot doctor for athletes who said that ballet dancers were tougher than any other athletes he'd worked with. They'd "play" with injuries that would leave other athletes on the sidelines.
