"Because I Dance"
Because I dance doesn't mean that I am weak.
It doesn't mean that my "sport" is unimportant.
Because we (dancers) use tights and pink tutus.
Because we're dancers we sweat, and we work.
Because we're dancers simply means one thing;
We work until we simply cannot work anymore.
We work until our feet bleed, and our muscles are torn.
True athletes work until they simply cannot anymore,
And that is what dancing is all about.
