Before writing became my passion, from the time I could walk, my first love was dance. I was a professional dancer and a teacher of ballet for more than a quarter of a century.
Throughout my life, I have followed the careers of many incredible dancers and it is not often a true star arrives, one that burns so brightly that they eclipse other dancers. Ivan Vasiliev is one such dancer.
solo from the ballet, Don Quixote.
Before deciding to post this, I tested it out on my brother who is no lover of ballet and he was gasping with awe. To see something a human shouldn't be able to do, spend a minute to watch.
Stay tuned . . .
PS: My second novel is about the struggles of a young dancer, The Double Happiness Company.
