Former Boston Ballet Principal Dancer and TWH consultant Tai Jimenez

After retiring due to injury: "I'd known it was time to let go for years. I was just afraid to do it. Finally, my body made the choice for me. Dancing was never a prerequisite to freedom, it was just a tool. Sometimes I'd mistaken the tool for the thing itself...

...I was afraid to stop dancing, because I was afraid of not knowing how to cope with the ordinary aspects of life, with ordinary fears, with my insanity. I was afraid to ask, "Who am I?" and afraid of the silent answer."
