Ballet: A study in making pain look effortless

"You see yourself in the mirror every day, and you see how imperfect you are and it makes you afraid. I always raised the bar too high. I had to learn to change my attitude from ‘Oh, no, I can’t do this’ to ‘Yes, I can.’ I had to learn how to condition my body and mind to go onstage no matter what." — Veronika Part 



"If you are always concerned about what you look like, ballet becomes a bunch of steps, instead of art."

Carla Körbes (principal with Pacific Northwest Ballet)
