“I just want to be perfect,” Ruby mutters in the film, High Strung.
To which her ballet teacher replies:
“And what happens when you achieve perfection?
You stop then?
It’s imperfections that keep us alive. Motivating us to push further and further.
Each time you conquer a step, there will always be another challenge waiting.
It’s a long road, it never ends. As dancers, this is our journey.”
