A good article overall. But I slightly disagree with the last line. Dance is so much more than having the perfect body. It is about having the perfect love of expressing oneself in dance, it is the perfect sacrifice of oneself to pursue one's dream and passion, it is seeing the ultimate beauty in one of God's majestic creations.....and much much more.
