D is for Discipline!
Discipline is a dancer’s currency. Dance is drilled into your memory and muscles until it becomes part of you. It’s either faultless or unsightly – and we know it when we see it!
Dance is excruciating – difficult on the mind, body and soul. Sacrifice, dedication, and loyalty to the artform is fundamental. Your body must be in complete balance, and every part of you must be in perfect shape.
So why do we do it?
Transcendence. Dance lifts you up to the heavens. It tests your boundaries, challenges your mind, and makes you feel strong, capable, and alive. Dancers know how to work hard, rise to demands, and meet crises.
