One of the hardest lessons I have learned as a dancer is to never give up and to keep going. People at school or other places outside of dance may have a hard time understanding what you do, but you cant let that discourage you. For example, they might not understand why you couldn’t come to your friends birthday party on the weekends, or that you weren’t able to meet up with your friends right after school for some ice-cream. Ballet and dance takes dedication, time, and effort. That means practice every night or every other night. It is very important to not let what other people say or think bother you.You are amazing and talented. You are unique in your own way and that’s ok. Be proud of who you are and never let what anyone else says let you down. Always remember to Never Give Up!
