The dancers are not only "nowhere near overweight," they look like they don't have more than half a pound of body fat combined. Indeed, the female dancer has struggled with anorexia. She appears emaciated to myself and to everyone I know who is familiar with this 'scandal'. I highly doubt that her weight is even a three-digit number. A. Macaulay has a very sick, distorted view of what dancers' bodies should look like--yes, they ought to be lean, but one needs quite a bit of muscle to dance as well. And in terms of aesthetics, few people find dancing skeletons appealing.
nice comment. have a look at the pictures above. macaulay has his history wrong as well.
