New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is not afraid to show off his feminine side and he proved just that when he took a ballet lesson as part of his appearance on the cover of GQ Magazine.
It was a pretty amusing sight to see, especially when real-life ballerina Nathalia Arja hilariously tried to fix his stance but failed to remember that he is 6-foot-6and it would not be very easy
. Despite it looking silly, Gronkowski bought into the lesson and seemed very intrigued in everything.
Arja seemed pretty impressed with what he was able to do, but he obviously has some work to do.
“Well, I think you did a lot better than how we started today. Your hands were soft. Your shoulders were down. Your jump was really high,” Arja said when Gronkowski asked how he did.
While seeing Rob Gronkowski do ballet might have been a funny sight, football players have been doing ballet for years. It has been said to help give them an advantage in gracefulness and agility while also helping protect against injuries.
So, maybe Gronkowski, who has missed games in the past due to back problems, will start thinking about doing this on a regular basis.
