Ballet and football? It’s no secret that ballet training is unmatched for developing speed and flexibility. So when New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski visited Miami Beach, Principal Soloist Nathalia Arja was more than happy to put him through the paces .. Gronk-style, of course!

“Ballet is so hard. It’s hard on your body, and it’s hard on your mind… we’re constantly pushing ourselves.”
