Everyone on this board knows how proud I am of my daughter's accomplishments - yes, I do brag.
This article so describes everything she has experienced - especially after dancing 4 parts in 4 shows in two days with a virus so bad she was admitted in the hospital for 24 hours the day after the week-end before last. She is great now and just finished 6 shows Friday, Saturday and Sunday and I get to watch Thursday and Saturday. I am counting the minutes. I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. http://elitedaily.com/life/ballet-dancers-harder-stronger/1322153/

Great article and so very true. I've long believed that ballet/dance has many fringe benefits that will last a lifetime. Have a lovely holiday!

Thanks for sharing the article. Yes, ballet dance teaches us dedication, perseverance, discipline, team work, passion etc.
And above all, like it said, ballet dancers work harder, love stronger and live better. This is quite true.
