Are you curious what ChatGPT answered?

Everyone is talking about ChatGPT. So I asked it questions about ballet to get a picture of its power. I want to share with you about my fascinating journey into the mind of a machine. Tell me if you like the results or not!

How much does a ballet dancer make?

The salary of a ballet dancer can vary widely depending on factors such as their level of experience, the company they are working for, and the location of the company. In general, professional ballet dancers may earn a starting salary of around $25,000 to $30,000 per year, while more experienced dancers in top companies can earn well over $100,000 per year. However, it’s important to note that many ballet dancers work long hours and face intense competition for roles, and their earnings may be supplemented by additional income from teaching or performing in other types of dance.

Who is the richest ballet dancer?

It is difficult to determine who the richest ballet dancer in the world is, as the salaries of dancers are often kept private and can vary widely depending on factors such as their level of experience, the company they work for, and the country in which they are based.

However, some of the most well-known and highly paid ballet dancers include Mikhail Baryshnikov, who is estimated to have a net worth of around $45 million, and Misty Copeland, who is estimated to have a net worth of around $500,000 to $1 million. Other highly paid ballet dancers include Carlos Acosta, Sergei Polunin, and Diana Vishneva.

It’s worth noting that while these dancers have achieved significant financial success, many ballet dancers struggle to make a living from their art, and the profession can be highly competitive and financially challenging.

My next question: Tell me about classical ballet? What is it like?

Classical ballet is a highly technical form of dance that originated in the courts of Renaissance Italy and later developed in France and Russia. It is characterized by its graceful, fluid movements, precise footwork, and intricate choreography.

Classical ballet technique emphasizes the use of the turnout, which is the outward rotation of the legs from the hip joint, as well as the use of pointed feet, high extensions, and intricate footwork. Dancers typically wear pointe shoes, which allow them to dance on the tips of their toes and create the illusion of weightlessness and grace.

The repertoire of classical ballet is often based on story ballets, such as Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, and Romeo and Juliet, which tell a narrative through dance and music. These ballets often include a cast of characters, elaborate costumes, and intricate sets and lighting designs.

Classical ballet is performed by large dance companies around the world, such as the Paris Opera Ballet, the Bolshoi Ballet, and the American Ballet Theatre. It is also taught in dance schools and academies around the world, with a focus on building strength, flexibility, and technical proficiency.

Famous classical ballet choreographers include Marius Petipa, George Balanchine, and Rudolf Nureyev, among others.

What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is a language model developed by OpenAI, designed to respond to text-based queries and generate natural language responses. It is part of the broader field of artificial intelligence known as natural language processing (NLP), which seeks to teach computers to understand and interpret human language. 
ChatGPT is built using a deep learning architecture called the Transformer, which enables it to learn patterns in language and generate text that is coherent and human-like. It has been trained on a massive corpus of text data and can therefore generate responses to a wide variety of prompts, from general knowledge questions to more complex conversational topics. 
One of the main applications of ChatGPT is in chatbots, where it can be used to provide automated customer service, answer FAQs, or even engage in more free-flowing conversations with users. However, it can also be used in other NLP applications such as text summarization, language translation, and content creation. (source:

I danced ballet as child, albeit with little success. Despite this, my passion for ballet and dance has carried into adulthood. I still love to watch ballet performances and would love to share my passion with you.

  1. Hi Evi, good morning, a pleasure!.

    „Artificial Intelligence“ is a contradiction, it does not create anything new, it only combines the knowledge of some people following a pre-designed program by other people . Intelligence will always be natural, be it a human being, a sparrow or a feline, among others.

    This is my humble opinion. Bye-bye, have a nice day!.
