Not quite the average ballet story.
on 25 June 2013
It was the blurb that drew my attention to this. Daria's story for most of this does follow the 'expected' paths. Classical training, lead roles, travelling and performing around the world. All very good for those who are already ballet fans. What makes this for the non-ballet fan is her meeting, at almost the end of her career, that utterly changed her outlook and attitude towards everyone around her, her dancing and herself. Refreshing to read someone admitting how wrong they could be and how grateful they are for having realised it, grasping their final chances and opening themselves back up again to opportunity. Food for thought.
