Time to Dance

Professional-level student dancers are a rare breed. The time, coordination, and dedication demanded by dance makes it nearly impossible to simultaneously maintain a full academic schedule and a professional ballet career. Many students find it debilitating to balance the two pursuits.

A Little Bit Like Grieving

One thing I have gotten better at over the past few years is letting go: of calculus, of dance classes in which you get called out for wearing anything other than your leotard and tights, of the size zero jeans that I outgrew in 8th grade and somehow managed to fit into again in 11th grade, of drinking coffee exclusively on Fridays. In a word: discipline.

Breaking the Criteria: Club Sports and Breakdancing

Though I’ve never met him, I recognize Yamada from across the quiet, sunny dining hall. He has a dancer’s casual grace, and his hoodie looks like it could transition from lunch attire to dance gear on a moment’s notice. Yamada is the president of Harvard Breakers, a student breakdancing group that meets four times a week to condition, practice, and choreograph.
