“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.” ~ Anne Lamott
The Pointe Shoe - At The Australian Ballet, over 5000 pairs are worn out each year, and every shoe is handmade to each dancer's individual specifications. Each pair costs $85; a huge expense but crucial to our breathtaking performances.
