Athletes / Dancers are given a taste of the forbinned fruit (praise, admiration, fame, success, adrenaline rush, centered attention, ect...) and then it's over, there is no looming prize ahead.

It's not the dance that defines them as unique and special. Dance is the expression of these truly exceptional human beings!!!

Love and light,
Mr. Schissler
