Express Yourself

Madonna backstage prior to a performance on her Blonde Ambition Tour.
After graduating, she received a dance scholarship to the University of Michigan.  She convinced her father to allow her to take ballet lessons and was persuaded by Christopher Flynn, her ballet teacher, to pursue a career in dance.  At the end of 1977, she dropped out of college and relocated to New York City.   She had little money and worked as a waitress at Dunkin’ Donuts and with modern dance troupes.  Madonna said of her move to New York: “It was the first time I’d ever taken a plane, the first time I’d ever gotten a taxi cab. I came here with $35 in my pocket. It was the bravest thing I’d ever done.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            -via Wikipedia
