  1. I agree this is a very nice article from Joy. I don't understand why she didn't just say these things to her audiences in her vlogs, at the time that they were happening. She has tarnished her reputation by repeatedly contradicting herself and confusing the wider audience, which undoubtably includes significant people in the dance sphere. It sounds like she is finally finding fulfillment from dance beyond perfecting technique, which is, I hope, revelationary to her.
  2. It is good for Joy to see what lies beyond Russia's borders. She has a good position with lots of performing opportunity, but she wants to make enough money to get by and the best facilities to remain at her peak. She is growing now and I really hope she has more opportunities coming her way from European companies.
  3. Hopefully she will get a raise now due to her promotion. Maybe her vlogs are even helping her as opposed to hindering, maybe she draws in a new crowd? At times she does seem to display a lack of perspective, that is a very appropriate observation, but I don't think she is naive about the talents around her. She knows her strengths and her weaknesses and that she is not 'the best of the best'. She works hard for a reason, and I think she's already improved a lot. She's an interesting person.

  5. I'd like to contribute to this post because I have been following for a long time. Before I go on to anything critical, I have to say I watch Joy Womack's vlogs every day and am highly appreciative of the window into her life. Whether or not we all agree on her choices, she is sharing something unique and is making her dreams come true before our very eyes. I have actually followed her story since I came across the New York Times coverage on youtube when she was fifteen. Back then she was so fascinating and just absorbed everything the Russian school was giving her. Now she is older and more
