Russian Winter by Daphne Kalotay p. 11

"She worries the day will be ruined -- and after such a long wait, ever since Mother first explained about the ballet school. The vague, dreamlike description might have come straight from a fairy tale, a land where little girls wear their hair in high, tightly pinned buns and study not just the usual reading and geography and history but how to move, how to dance."

Doesn't every little girl want to dance? Want to take ballet? When I was this age, I actually had a Anna Pavlova doll, modeled after the famous Russian ballerina. The doll was way too beautiful to play with - she was just to be looked at. And aspired to.
