“Most young dancers know what it takes to earn a place in a professional company-good physical proportions, coordination, technical facility, and musicality. But many of them do not realize how important it is to be fully trained when they get there. The best dancers remain inquisitive about their art throughout their careers and are always willing to explore new areas of growth and discovery.” - Robert Joffrey
