About the picture:

When I went to the Great Theater of Palacio das Artes to see this show, I had in mind to do this picture, exactly as it is, and that´s the reason for the joke with the title of it, as described in the story below:

About 10 years ago, at my brother´s workplace, all his mates were die-hard fans, both for Atlético, both for Cruzeiro.
At that time there were those partitions 1.20 m in height between the working groups, all used to preach pictures, posters, newspaper clippings, etc ... I remember well, they were much exalted in soccer discussion, divided in groups of traditional teams of Belo Horizonte: Atlético, Cruzeiro, América and their photos. Also Formula 1: Alan Proust, Nelson Piquet, Airton Sena with their respective pictures (each one bigger than the other), then women, in fact everything they could do to have the adrenaline boost and other stuff as well (hehehe).
In the table of a well-known cruzeirense, there was a picture of Cruzeiro team warming up. They were in line, on tiptoe, and with both arms raised, with the fingers interlaced between one hand to another. Then a funny atleticano (creative like that could only be atleticano) drew ballerina skirts on the players of the photo of Cruzeiro! It was really cool! I never forgot that image made with a bic pen, so creatively scrawled on a picture! Then whenever I see dancers, inevitably I remember that photo transfigured to an entire squad of cruzeirense players, warming up like dancers on a stage, and when I see the team of Cruzeiro, I remember the dancers! No offense my cruzeirense friends!

Sobre a foto:
Quanto fui ao grande teatro do Palácio das Artes para ver este espetáculo, já tinha em mente fazer esta foto, exatamente como está, e por isto a brincadeira com o título dela, a história contada abaixo:

Há pelo menos 10 anos, onde meu irmão trabalhava, todos lá são torcedores fanáticos, tanto pelo Atlético, tanto pelo Cruzeiro.
Naquela época havia aquelas divisórias de 1,20 m de altura entre os grupos de trabalho, todos as usavam para pregar fotos, cartazes, recortes de jornais, etc... Eu me lembro bem, eles eram bem exaltados nas discussões de futebol, divididos em grupos dos times tradicionais de Belo Horizonte: Atlético, Cruzeiro, América e suas respectivas fotos. Fórmula 1: Alan Proust, Nelson Piquet, Airton Sena e também suas respectivas fotos (cada uma maior que a outra) e por fim as mulheres, enfim tudo o que podia fazer a adrenalina subir e outras coisas (hehehe).
Na mesa de um cruzeirense conhecido, tinha a foto do time do Cruzeiro fazendo aquecimento, eles estavam em fila, nas pontas dos pés, e com os dois braços levantados, com os dedos das mãos entrelaçados entre uma mão e outra. Daí um atleticano engraçadinho (criativo assim só pode ser atleticano) foi lá na foto do time do Cruzeiro e desenhou saias de bailarina na turma toda do time do cruzeiro! Ficou muito legal! Nunca esqueci aquela imagem feita a caneta bic, tão criativamente rabiscada sobre uma foto! Daí sempre que vejo bailarinas, inevitavelmente lembro daquela foto transfigurada para um time inteiro de jogadores cruzeirenses fazendo aquecimento como bailarinas num palco e quando vejo o time do Cruzeiro lembro das bailarinas! Sem ofensas meus amigos cruzeirenses!
