  • Dance is a workout for the brain and the body. Learning new sequences can be a challenge, even for professional dancers. Boston Ballet's Corinna Gill writes:
Learning the choreography is the hardest part for me. Once I get it and I get comfortable with it, it becomes so fun, and performing is the icing on the cake. But until then, it's counting and studying videos and a lot of trial and error.
