If you don’t feel challenged, it’s because you’re not doing
enough. Ballet should never feel comfortable. Comfortable
is lazy! If you’re comfortable when you dance, you’re
not pushing yourself hard enough. 100% is not enough.
You have to give 200%. One tendu takes years of hard
work and will never be perfect. Everything in ballet is a challenge. - George Balanchine
