Artistic Dancer

Swiftly on her feet she spins on tippy toes “It takes an athlete to dance, but an artist To be a dancer,” is quite the quote that shows How ballet moves the soul, such you can’t resist From low to the ground to springing up real high She moves with grace flying here without a sigh Pounding out the routine that's without a flaw Keeping the audience beyond in all awe

    Lovely descriptive of the flowing beauty of a ballerina. Dancing always looks effortless, but the practice behind the performance is tough.. I know... I danced. xx
