It seemed she had made it -- yet after the pieces were produced, she returned to India to study, saying she needed to immerse herself in advanced technical dance training with her guru, the esteemed Indian teacher who guides dancers through their careers and often life itself. <P>"People were saying to me, 'How could you do this when you were up here?'" she says, gesturing far above her head. "But I couldn't see where I was going from there, and people didn't understand that going there for me had been a leap, that there was a whole bunch of stuff missing. ... Other people were much more supportive, though. They understood that I had to follow my intuition, saying it would eventually sort itself out." <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><B>more...</B><P><BR>
