True for every beginner dancer, looking up at the big girls and then suddenly you are one and you realize you are exactly who you are meant to be. Dance is beautiful, graceful, powerful and fills us with so much joy. Remember to cherish every moment, friendship, and dance because one day they will all be wonderful memories
No one knows or can appreciate how physically challenging dance is. No one sees the blisters, bruises, blood, or raw areas of a dancer's feet. They haven't taken 4 hours of class, come home crying in pain, only to swallow some Advil, ice the muscles, and wake up to practice some more before class that evening. It's harder than you think.
