When we stand tall, we feel powerful, and that energy can propel us forward in any endeavor we want to take on. Posture, you see, is really all about energy. That is something that we dancers quickly come to understand. We cannot dance fully and freely if our bodies aren’t held in a way that allows our breath and energy to circulate, unimpeded, from head to toe. That is what gives us our power and ignites the invisible spark that connects ourselves, our fellow dancers, and the audience and that can help our performances transcend technical precision and soar to a place that is ethereal and magical.

Rather than comparing yourself to photographs in a magazine or images on a television screen, the only visage you need to focus on is the one that stares back at you from your own mirror.
