    ballet dancer

    Hi!
    I'd like to know the simplest way to say:
    'I can dance, I train as a ballet dancer'. Something people mean when they say: ' I can swim, play tennis, and so on'. Is it possible to use such an expression referring to ballet? Could I say: ' I do ballet', or 'I can do ballet'. Thank you!

    "I do ballet" is perfectly OK.
    You can also say "I can do ballet", but generally you tell people what you do do, not what you can do.
