Show Summary Details


This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the author. He says that there are intrinsic characteristics or qualities in his training, both in technique and performance, which go far beyond merely training the body and mind to dance. Training in ballet prepares dancers for performing careers, albeit relatively short ones, and also prepares them for life. It offers them what entrepreneurs possess, and what corporate, educational, research, and nonprofit enterprises seek in future associates and executives.
