Pirouette and practice daily sheer perfection to achieve.
Ballerina, dance through pain, success does not come without effort.
With the spot light shining down, your payment is the wild applause

    Love the way you conveyed both the time that has to be invested in learning ballet as well as the sacrifices that must be made. The last line gave me a great laugh, Joyce. This is truly the best one I've seen for the contest! Wishing you success. Love, Carolyn
