Every single day until the last day of your dance career you have to work, you have to strive to achieve perfection. But better than perfection is the ability to let it go. When you’re onstage you have to know that it’s impossible to be perfect and you just rely on your experience and talent. The great performance is when you feel, ‘Oh my god, I’m just completely free.’ This is amazing.
