We sat down with two of our repertory company members to ask them all about being a young artist, pre-show rituals, and more. Each month, we'll be interviewing two different Flight Path dancers. Read the full interview with Tobi and Nicole here, and get to know the rest of this season's company and how you can sponsor a year's tuition here.

As a young dancer, I was taught that falling out of a relevé, even during class, was not an option. I was told to never, ever give up on it. "Die for it," my ballet master used to say.

I used to love, even dream, of being immersed in dance every day. But after 10 years of pushing myself beyond my limits as a full-time dancer, something started happening to me internally. My vision would get blurry, my body felt like I was spinning, and my ears would ring.

I did what I always did—I ignored the warning signs and pushed through it. I never wanted to look weak or incapable as a dancer, even if I was in a lot of pain. Even if I felt like I was going to pass out.

I began feeling this way every day. From what I can remember, that was when I started blacking out while I was dancing.
