The first time in the studio - with leotards and tights and my slicked back bun, my tap shoes in one hand, and my ballet shoes in the other - I knew I was ready.  The way each dancer leaves it all out on the stage reveals their obvious commitment to the art of dance. That first day, rather than simply walking into the studio, I ran.  I found my spot in the center of the room and knew immediately that this is
