When I first started volunteering at the ballet I used to ask individual dancers what his/her favorite ballet was, and many told me, “Don Q.” When I finally saw the ballet, I loved it. I would enjoy seeing it again. Of course, I may have been brainwashed by the dancers!
As a little girl I had lots of energy. As my brothers would explore the backyard in Heber, Arizona, I was destined to join them. I became the biggest tomboy ever. I was happiest when muddy and dirty and loved acting like a boy alongside my brothers.
Dance comes in all shapes, sizes and there is no limit to who can experience it and the emotions it brings out of you. As a dancer, dance can bring you pure joy and the incredible feeling of accomplishment when you’ve danced your best on-stage.
