Some people think ballet class is boring. Ballet is filled with small seemingly unimportant exercises, but one of the beautiful things about ballet is that every little exercise counts. The work you do at the barre shows up on stage as much as the most difficult allegro (jumps.) Like many things in life every moment counts towards making you the best you can be. The process involves some blood, sweat and tears but if you work hard the end result is always rewarding. Give plies the credit they deserve and make them count every single time!
