A Dancer's Heart

May 13, 2010
We practice and train for years, just to learn the basics.
We learn the fundamentals, and they never leave our minds.
We condition until our muscles are screaming with pain.
We memorize every tiny movement; every position; every stance.
We practice for countless hours until the moves are instilled in our bodies.
We perform and compete; we let all of our worries disappear.
We never let winning get to our head,
We never let defeat stand in our way.
We recognize dance as our passion; our delight.
We fly to our safe haven with dance; escape the chaos of life.
We overcome our fears.
We strive to meet our goals.
We have a devotion that is beyond compare; a determination that is unsurpassed.
We know there is nothing in the world we would rather be doing.
We entertain, we captivate, we inspire.
We strive for perfection, yet know there is no such thing.
We realize that dance is a sport; it is our sport.
We live to dance and dance to live—we were born with a dancer’s heart
