When George Balanchine said, "I don't want people who want to dance; I want people who have to dance" he was speaking about members of the New York City Ballet. To join their ranks takes a tremendous amount of commitment, perseverance, and training. And, for most of these dancers, the training begins at the School of American Ballet.
