Chances are, you are probably at least a little insecure about something. Don’t feel bad, I am too. Everyone is, even those that don’t have to wear a leotard and stare in a mirror for work purposes.
Most of us have at one time or another felt ugly, felt unworthy of our partners and loved ones, felt afraid to go for success, to voice our opinions or say ‘this is what I want”. This is even true of the artists that we, or I, idolize. Or at least, it’s true of the characters that they portray in the upcoming dance film, ‘The Enemy Within’ created by the UAI (United Artistis Initiative)
What is that? Who’s in it? Where do I see it for myself? Here’s what I know:
