Isaac is having a great experience in Russia. Not always a great time, but certainly a great experience.
The sheer nature of ballet, being an art of young bodies, forces the dancers to take life seriously much of the time. They have to have the poise, determination, work ethic and fortitude of a much older person or, quite frankly, they wouldn't survive the training. They endure pressures that would break many an adult.
That is why pictures like this make me so happy.
Play, children, play!!
Snowball to the face.
"Look what I have prepared for you: Snow."
Of course, they are still dancers.
And as such, if you know one at all, dancers will dance.
