For all the drama, the humor, and the beauty you see on stage, there are thousands of hours of rehearsal, hundreds of pointe shoes, along with some injuries and heartbreak.
And to what end?
To dazzle, to intrigue, to present something that makes your eyes well and your throat choke up. To leave you in wonder and delight. To allow you to feel emotions that linger long after the curtain has closed.
For a dancer, all the pain and triumph is then worth it.
Come, explore your emotions.
