i guess this is the "indentured servitude" that's mentioned - i've never heard a ballet company apprenticeship referred to that way before....<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>...a low-paying, low-prestige, long-hours apprenticeship with the Atlanta Ballet.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

It is an inspiring story, surely - but as for the "indentured servitude" - it is apparently something that she entered into of her own volition - twas not forced upon her. <P>In that context any work done for low pay with long hours could be so named..........
