I think that most people overlook the amount of dedication that a ballet dancer needs to be able to become successful. I think that most people don’t realize how many hours are spent in that studio everyday practicing and rehearsing to perfection. I think people don’t know how hard it is to become top-dancer. From sun-up to sun-down, professional dancers dance through injuries, aches, pains, and sore muscles. No matter how sore they are, the show must go on, and the dancers are still dancing. Blisters and bunions are crushing their feet, but their expression is so wonderful, you would never even know what they are feeling. Professional dancers are athletes,  and they work harder than most other sports. Every day, every minuet is spent rehearsing and practicing for that night’s show, but I guess you would never know…

“What we feel when the stage lights shine is beyond compare, it is like we are living a dream and then all of the sudden, all of the aches go away… as we dance our heart away…”
