"In ballet, you must have a controlled strength. Long, lean muscles and a delicate demeanor, never the aggressive type of strong. Always controlled, always perfect. I hold myself to this standard in ballet, as well as life. Things must be flawless, or at least appear so. I aim to escape the laws of the universe, to escape my own body. I cannot do this if the world perceives me as another normal person..."  Carmella lives and breathes dance.
