Episode 301: On Your Toes
When I say the word ballet, what comes into your mind? A graceful ballerina in tights wearing pointe shoes? Do you think about the seemingly impossible strength needed to move the way the dancers do? Or, if not do you think of the lyrical music that ballet uses to express such a wide range of emotions?
