Ballet was difficult for me; I was not a natural, but it became my outlet, where I met new people, new ideas and new art forms. A lot of my personal growth and discipline are a credit to working with Carla Prucnal.
It’s not like sports because there is no end game, it is all part of the process and the residual benefits are for a lifetime
Ballet relaxes me. I can empty my mind. I work hard, but nothing good comes without earning it. I will always remember how to carry myself, walk and sit.
I wanted my daughter in a form of dance that would help her respect herself as a girl. The young one says: I love being on the big stage with all the lights on me and everyone watching
Dance makes me happy, even when it’s difficult. I feel like I am full of energy. It has improved my coordination, balance, endurance, memory and discipline. As a result, it has helped me academically as well as physically
