Why did you become a ballet dancer?

When I was 9 or 10 years old I won a dance competition pretending to be Michael Jackson! I had to do an encore a few times, and my mum said that if I wanted to do dance then it had to be ballet. I said no at first, but she said Michael Jackson also did ballet when he was young... so I went along with it. I'm not sure if she was telling the truth or not but I ended up loving ballet anyway so it didn't matter!
