I just discovered the most interesting documentary about New York City ballet, it's called city.ballet. It's a twelve-part online series narrated by Sarah Jessica Parker. It really opens your eyes to the ballet world, where 16 year olds are professionals and by the age 18 you could be at the top of your career. These dancers have been training together since childhood, the school is more like home for them than anything else, the company is their family in many ways. It's inspiring to see how hard they work for what they are passionate about, they have given their whole lives up for this but for them it is so worth it. I knew a dancers life is difficult but could not imagine what they really go through, this documentary shows you a glimpse of that.
