With her long legs and equine, graceful body, youd think shed be a natural in ballet. The ballet teacher always was so sure I would be a great dancer. She said I had the perfect body for ballet . . . but I was always more interested in the other girls in the class than the dance. She blushes. I can dance and I can be graceful . . . but Id get staring at the other girls doing those graceful moves and stretches and just forget what I was supposed to be doing and Id just stand there and grin at them..
