    It never ceases to amaze me to see the effort and discipline that goes into ballet.

    • I’m with you Peter. That’s why you have to absolutely love ballet to stay with it. The rewards are amazing though in many ways! Physically, emotionally, spiritually even! Of course when done properly. You must have a healthy mind-set, therefore a healthy life-style and a positive outlook on what you want to accomplish.
