Even the best athletes have trouble nailing down simple ballet choreography. When New England Patriots tight-end Rob Gronkowski stopped by a studio to take ballet lessons from principal soloist Nathalia Arja, he probably wasn’t expecting it to be that hard. Except, watching his 6’6″ frame attempt to leap through the air proves ballet is one of the hardest sports ever. It requires endurance, flexibility, and grace. Though the football player was a good sport and had plenty of confidence, his moves did make us burst out laughing. Rob doing ballet is all of us because no one perfects their arabesque moves in one shot (unless you’re Misty Copeland). Watch his best attempts above, and then check out that time Misty tried to help Jimmy Fallon brush up on his ballet skills.
