The best kind of dance there is. Dancers have special shoes with flat toes to stand on. It requires an incredible amount of time, dedication, strength grace, and pure love of the art. It IS a sport, it IS just as hard as any other sport, and it WILL make you sweat, cry, and bleed. But if you really love it, like I do, you don't care about any of that. You care about the awesome people you meet, the amazing audiences, and the thrilling performances.
She is the best pointe dancer I've ever seen.
