Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow.

1 Ballet has been proven to be a valuable conditioning technique for


sports. Two years ago, the Institute of Sports Medicine and
Trauma at Lennox Hospital in New York studied the effects of
different sports activities on the body. They were then compared
with ballet. The conclusion: ballet is more demanding than 5
football, basketball or even soccer.

2 Aware of the mind-body discipline of ballet, many western


coaches and trainers are seeking out ballet teachers for their
athletes. During the 1984 Olympics, American sprinter Carl Lewis
reigned supreme with four gold medals. One sports commentator 10
remarked that part of Lewis’ training regime included ballet
classes as it helped lengthen his strides to blast towards the finish
line.

3 There are parallels between sports and ballet. For example, a


basketball player cannot jump without doing a plie (knee bend). 15
Ankles and knees are also strengthened, providing agility in
sports.

4 The ballet movement of rotating legs from the hips helps to


strengthen smaller, more injury-susceptible muscles. Dancers
become more aware of their pelvis positioning and have 20
increased range of motion in their hips.

5 Ballet technique emphasises verticality. The dancer’s body parts


must be correctly centred and aligned to allow maximum stability
and ease of movement. Ballet possesses many steps, including
those that require the dancers, while in midair, to turn, beat their 25
legs or feet together, or change their leg position. Basically, it is
more demanding than a regular aerobic workout.

6 A Malaysian male ballet dancer, Jason Lim, sums it up, “ I literally


have to drag myself out after a ballet class but I feel good.”

7 The fitness of ballet is enormous. Not only does it build lean 30


muscle, burn body fat and develop a flat stomach, the exercises
also help to raise the resting metabolism rate. Furthermore, the
release of the feel-good endorphin hormone does wonders to
boost confidence.

8 Most ballet classes begin with exercises at the barre which the 35
dancer holds onto for support. These exercises warm up and
stretch the muscles, work the tendons and loosen the joints. The
second part of the class is done without the support of the barre
and is called the centre practice. It usually begins with slow,
sustained exercises (adagios) that develop the dancer’s sense of 40
balance and fluidity of movement. Slow exercises are followed by

1119/2 11 SULIT
SULIT 1119/2
LTS 2006 SET 1

quick movements (allegros), beginning with small jumps and


progressing to large travelling steps, turns, and leaps.

9 Ballet workouts are useful for both men and women as they
strengthen and develop a complete range of muscles: from the 45
neck muscle and the shoulders to the upper back, lower back and
thighs. In addition, they work the calf muscle and the bottom
tissue.

10 According to www.calorie-counter.net, about 15 minutes of ballet


can burn up to 85 calories. Over 12 months, this ballet workout 50
uses up a total of 31 025 calories per year or about 8.9 pounds of
body fat. Now, is not getting fit and into shape much better than
dieting and liposuctions?

There’s Been a Death in the Opposite House

There’s been a death in the opposite house The minister goes stiffly in
As lately as today. As if the house were his,
I know it by the numb look And he owned all the mourners now,
Such houses have always. And little boys besides;

The neighbors rustle in and out, And then the milliner, and the man
The doctor drives away. Of the appalling trade,
A window opens like a pod, To take the measure of the house.
Abrupt, mechanically; There’ll be that dark parade

Somebody flings a mattress out,- Of tassels and of coaches soon;


The children hurry by; It’s easy as a sign,-
They wonder if It died on that,- The intuition of the news
I used to when a boy. In just a country town.

“I brought you back another exactly like it. And it has
taken us ten years to pay for it. You can understand that it was
not easy for us, for us who had nothing. At last, it is ended and
I am very glad.”
Madame Forestier had stopped.
“You say that you bought a necklace of diamonds to
replace mine?”
“Yes. You never noticed it, then! They were very
similar.”
And she smile with a joy that was at once proud and
ingenuous. Madame Forestier, deeply moved, took her hands.
