From age 14, Carlton had been studying intensely at Manhattan's prestigious School of American Ballet. When she became disenchanted with that institution's restrictive environment, she began writing songs in earnest.

I only saw the pilot of "Alias," but I recall being impressed that at last someone with a muscular body had been cast in the role of a woman who is supposed to be accomplished in martial arts. It makes me chuckle to see some of the soft bodies that have to struggle through fight scenes.

I saw an Egyptian movie musical from the late '60s whose singing, dancing leading lady's character was supposed to be the champion runner at her school. Not only did she not have any visible muscle in her legs, she also had the classic girl's style of running, with her knees together and her feet kicking out to the side.

Miss Short Bull has a degree in Political Science and is pursuing a Master's in Public Administration.

So much for the myth that dancers are stupid and uneducated.
