BALLET PRODIGY HOBBS WATERS MAKES IT LOOK EASY BY TRAINING TEN HOURS A DAY

Hobbs Waters is a true athlete. The pre-professional dancer makes it look easy on stage but behind the scene trains for 10-hours a day, except Sundays. That 60-hours a week dedication is admirable but when it is coming from an 11-year-old, it is outstanding!

The talented teen, enrolled in the Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory in Connecticut summer intensive program, says that he is exhausted but, “[he] feels like [his] body is adjusting,” in an interview with Willamette Week. Most dancers start their pre-professional career training between 10 and 12 years-of-age; however, Waters, who started taking lessons at age 7, was already committed to dance by the time he was 9.

“It was the only thing I was good at,” he commented in the interview. “I immediately fell in love with it.”
However, ballet isn’t the only thing that his keeping this talented pre-teen busy. Besides, his grueling dance schedule, Waters is an illustrator, who holds gallery exhibitions across Portland, he plays the cello and designs T-shirts.

Move over Baryshnikov, it looks like there is another legend in the making!
