out who they are as people,

and the life of a classical dancer these days is certainly not all tutus!
So experience of other dance forms is a good idea.
- Deborah Bull

As you get older, the physical abilities decrease,
which is particularly frustrating because your brain gets so good!
So as you are becoming less technically or physically able,
younger dancers are emerging who need the space to perform.

Open yourself to the Light!
Hold back nothing,
Trust in the Light.
