Teen Ballerina Proves Body Diversity In Dance Is A Beautiful Thing.
Staying focused is very important when you’re doing a number, but emotions can always get in the way.
Howell recalls one time when she was dancing in memory of her mother. She had a photo of her and danced with it. It was so emotional she messed up one of her performances. But the following year, she picked something less emotional, and it all worked out.
Everyone made a big deal when they saw the video of her dancing, but she doesn’t get why.
