A good dancer is an educated one, so don't abandon school.
Dancing is a tough career, but I'm glad I spent it at the Royal Ballet.
I have lots of interests, but it's true that dancing is a very full-time job.
But you do have to start young as a dancer if you're going to achieve the physical skills necessary.
It's not magic! It's physics. The speed of the turn is what keeps you upright. It's like a spinning top.
I think the shape of our bodies has as much to do with the shape of our parents as it does with training.
Because muscle is heavier than fat, dancers weigh more than you might think, but they are usually very lean.
I do take class because I still dance, and yes, I do slip into class with the Royal Ballet from time to time.
You increase muscle bulk by training against resistance. For example, weights. And in ballet, this isn't the case.
Dancing's not always stressful, but I always make sure that I'm prepared as I can be, both physically, mentally, and practically.
