It was a normal day at dance, but as we stretched I could feel that it would be a very special day. We started turns in second, and I was pretty nervous because I wasn’t to good at them, but I had been practicing them a lot. When I did my first pirouette I saw in the mirror that everything was precisely in line. My toes pointed like the crescent moon on a dark, clear night. My arms opened in a perfect parallel to the floor. With every turn I could feel my smile getting broader and broader. My butterflies melted away like butter. As I pulled my leg into passe after my 16 turns I realized that dance was my passion. I also realized that if you work hard enough at something you will succeed.
