Wall Street Journal: "Marie Taglioni Rolls in Grave"

From the Wall Street Journal: "On Their Toes and Asking For Trouble: Self-Taught Ballerinas Go Online."

Also from that article is this YouTube Video: "My Very First Handmade Pointe Shoes." Yes, you read that correctly and no, I am not shitting you. I think every ballet teacher in America just had a collective aneurysm.

I just can't believe I invested so much time/money/sweat/blood in receiving dance training when evidently, all I needed was a pair of pointe shoes (real or home-made) and access to the intertubes. Did I mention that I saw all that before I had my coffee? Ouch.

Rant over. If anyone needs me, I'll be in the other room weeping for humanity.
