Mikael Baryshnikov once said, "I do not try to dance better than anyone else. I only try to dance better than myself." For me, this quote articulates the attitude I have towards my own life - in the context of ballet and beyond. Whatever I pursue - be it dance, education, teaching, writing, or God - I never want to stop growing and learning. As the adage goes, if you're not growing, you're dying. I hope that my Hubs offer an opportunity to grow for all parties concerned.
