Dance from your heart and with everything you've got!
Dear Royal Ballet School Antwerp dancers,
Dance from your heart and with everything you've got! Take care of your body because it is your capital and the temple of your soul. Recognise your qualities and don't let your weaknesses discourage you. Work your butt off in the studio but enjoy the moment once you're on stage.
