Patriots’ Gronkowski not exactly a swan in 1st ballet lesson

BOSTON (AP) -

Don’t look for Rob Gronkowski to spike his slippers in the end zone anytime soon.
The New England Patriots’ star tight end had a dance lesson with Nathalia Arja, a soloist from the Miami City Ballet — and his bulk and gridiron moves didn’t exactly make him a natural.
A video of the lesson from men’s magazine GQ is getting lots of clicks and laughs on social media.
It shows Gronkowski awkwardly attempting a pliΘ, an arabesque and other classical ballet moves.
At the end of the lesson, he asks Arja how he did. Her diplomatic response: “Well, I think you did a lot better than how we started today.”
