The choice to dance is a very conscious one: as a hobby or as a profession, dance requires huge personal effort. Usually this effort is one we don't even acknowledge as our passion for dance makes the effort so natural, however sometimes that effort required can be too much. Whether for personal, physical or economical reasons, sometimes dance can fall to the bottom of the priority list for dance students.
Dance itself can even be exhausting, both mentally and physically, and often it can be difficult to muster the strength to continue. Dancers are renowned for their enthusiasm and determination to try new classes and work continuously on their craft, but sometimes it is too much to rehearse again and again, take the same class or take part in the same supplementing practice to better their skills and technique.
