#TBT Ski Ballet Event from Hot Dog... The Movie

Hot Dog... The Movie. Skiiers take part in the ski ballet competition and Rudi (John Patrick Reger) shows off some graceful moves.

It’s crazy to think that ski ballet (later renamed acroski) was such a big thing for so many years and now you can’t even buy a new set of ballet skis if you wanted to. Here is some classic moves from the 1984 cult flick! For a short period of time (in the 1980s) there were also pair ballet competitions, a variation of ballet, where two people performed tricks that not only included spins, jumps and leg crossing but also lifts and synchronic movements.
