I know it’s going to sound cheesy, but I knew I wanted to be a ballet dancer when I was four, sitting in the audience at the Nutcracker. I sat on the edge of my seat the whole time and loved it. I loved the movement and the costumes and the story. I loved it all. I started taking ballet that Spring and have been dancing ever since I’m 11 now, so I’m still a few years away from training to be a professional, but you can almost always find me at my ballet studio — either in class, in rehearsal, or watching our ballet company. I know that I have a lot of work to do to become a professional dancer, but I am definitely up to the task.
