To be an Etoile, seems to be the dream or the goal of every dancer. How many girls have dreamt to be a principal dancer dancing the role of the Swan Queen in Swan Lake?
Meanwhile, I enjoy dancing in the corps de ballet enough. Although each performance is challenging physically, I always want to give my all to the audience. And it is not only about giving to the audience, I dance for myself too. I am the type of dancer who gets nervous very easily. Do I want to be an Etoile? It's difficult and strage to say that I don't. But dancing as an Etoile certainly means a more challenging and stressful lifestyle, at the same time more rewarding though. Anyway, I am sure of one thing: I enjoy dancing, no matter as a soloist under the spotlight or as one of the corps de ballet.
