Why did you start dancing? /Why did you choose ballet? (1-3 sentences)

My love of dance began at the age of 3 when I watched my older sisters perform in the Canadian School of Ballet's "Nutcracker." I began taking lessons, constantly looking up to my older sisters and wanting to be as beautiful a dancer as they were. As the years went on, I tried more and more styles of dance and at the age of 13 I decided, when I came to Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet, that ballet was my passion.
