Thanks for this! I used to dance ballet myself so I really enjoyed watching Mao do something I really understand (Though I didn't understand anything they were saying in the vid!!)
Mao said Mao's mom wanted Mao to become a ballerina, so Mao started ballet at age 3, and then started figure skating at 5 to strengthen her legs for ballet.
I used to have friends from ballet class who did the same thing. Some were into figure skating, while others did gymnastics and they only took ballet to improve on their artistry. Mao looks really great on the ice though!
