Watch PBS Arts From San Francisco: The Little Mermaid at 12 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18 on Wisconsin Public Television.
Well I don’t know much about ballet, but I did grow up with many dancers for friends. If there’s one thing they have taught me over the years, it’s that any type of dancing requires a significant time commitment to build the skills you need to ever be worthy of a large scale performance.
I can only imagine how much blood, sweat and tears each of these performers has poured into the art of ballet to bring them to this place in their life. Which just raises the question, how many people choose to go down this path? Of the hundreds of people I know who got into dance and music and any other profession that would put them in the spotlight, I only know one who ended up making a living out of modeling in New York. With such a small percentage of people ‘making it,’ it’s amazing that enough talented people can be gathered together to put on such a significant performance.
