Anonymous asked: Let me just say that your Tumblr has inspired me to go back to my childhood dream of being a dancer, even if I get stereotyped.
That’s wonderful to hear. Congrats!
Don’t let anybody’s judgments get in the way of doing what makes you happy. Negative stereotypes only exist when people’s negative preconceived notions allow them to.

Anonymous asked: Mr. Nureyev defected in Paris in 1961! Those photographs were from the late 1950's. His friend was interrogated by the Stazi over the defection in the former DDR. The BBC on line has a 6 part series on Mr. Nureyev's biography. You may want to post the links. It is an interesting story of any Artist trying to find and express himself through his talents.
Thanks for the heads up, Anon. Look it up if you’re interested!
