But, trying to be more exact, it must have been the music that enthralled me - I have always loved "danceable" music, no matter if it is classical, flamenco, pop, latin or whatever. Some music one (I mean myself)just cannot dance to.

As I grew older and danced more myself, I began to have a deeper appreciation for ballet as an art form. It's where my heart is. I hear music and I choreograph impossible steps in my head. Dance is music made visible. Dance is breathing. Dance is life.

In a less eloquent vein, I'll just say that the sight of a long-legged woman in a short skirt dancing gracefully and elegantly on her toes does something for me.

Why I love ballet?
1. Movement to music - something inside of me cannot listen to a piece of music without imagining dancers dancing to it. Even in a concert hall, I can't just listen to a symphony orchestra or band without picturing dancers in my head.
2. Spectacle - gorgeous costumes on gorgeous human beings, all displayed on a stage, surrounded by opulent sets. Visual 'Beauty' in every sense of the word.
3. Opportunity to learn every nugget of information about one theme - becoming an expert at something. Turning every stone. Constant seeking, reading, exploring, traveling. I'm still learning.

How would you respond if asked why you like ballet?
One can always respond with, "why do you not like ballet?"
I've thought about it a lot and hypothesize that I like ballet for several reasons: It is beautiful and has a structure that intrigues my analytical mind. Also its a good excuse to learn about an obscure topic.

Clearly, for me, little has changed.
