What do you love about ballet the most?

"I love ballet for many reasons. I love that ballet is a universal art form. I love how you can communicate to anyone through dance. I love the many ways it expresses human emotion. I love the physicality and the way it pushes the human body in every way possible to create something beautiful. I love that perfection in ballet is virtually unattainable and there is always more ways to push yourself, technically and artistically. The challenge makes it all the more rewarding when you achieve your goals. I love the nerves before a performance and the spine tingling feeling being out on stage in front of a packed house. I love how you can be taken on a journey as a dancer and an audience member. Lastly, I love that ballet brings beauty and enjoyment into the lives of many."
