This Is One Dedicated Dancer

November 28, 2001

Now this is dedication to ballet: A video of a young dancer after getting her wisdom teeth pulled has been making its way around the internet. Through the Novocaine fog, she insists on going to ballet class that night—and then gives us a little grande battement combo to prove it.

When I got my teeth pulled, I’m pretty sure all I wanted to do was sleep and eat ice cream. I guess some of us can never take a break!
