The feeling of standing behind the curtains, feeling the warmth of the stage lights, the rush of adrenalin through your body, the tightness of your leotard and tutu, and the stiffness of your pointe shoes.
At I discovered girls. At that time, dancing was the only way you could put your arm around the girl. Dancing was courtship. Only later did I discover that you dance joy. You dance love. You dance dreams. ~ Gene Kelly, Singing In The Rain
