Over time, dancing can feel like a grind. The repetition, perfectionism and the massive amount of hours can be a soul sucker. But, it is the JOY of dance that truly drives dancers to continue training at such a pace for so many years. It takes more than just great physical strength to be a good dancer. It also takes dedication, a strong work ethic, artistry, and an undying passion and humility. In other words, a very strong soul.
