Desperately Perfect
Fifteen-year-old Katya is devastated. This week is the big international conference, in which dance professionals from around the world visit the renowned Vaganova Ballet Academy in St. Petersburg. They will be allowed to get a glimpse of the young students during their daily ballet lessons. The demonstration for her class was about to start, when Katya was ordered by the teacher to leave the room. Why did she have to get injured the day before the conference? This was her chance to be seen by an international crowd, and she has worked so hard to reach this point. Her shoulder hurts, but she doesn't care. She is used to this pain. If it didn't hurt how would she get better?
Katya, St. Petersburg, Russia, 2007 (#2) ballet
