Meteors fall over Lake Erie near Barcelona, NY, during the annual Perseid meteor shower. Every year during early August, the Earth passes through a trail of dust and ice from the comet Swift-Tuttle, showering the atmosphere for days with thousands of “shooting stars”.

For 10 days, Daily photographer Lauren Rock followed Chautauqua School of Dance Workshop II students, ages 13-15, through their classes and final Amphitheater performance to document the commitment and discipline required of a young ballerina.

“These girls are very young, but they are serious about dance,” Rock said. “Attending the School of Dance is one small step on their journey to becoming professional ballerinas. They learn to become adaptable — those who can pick up choreography quickly and adapt to different instructors and their styles are more likely to be successful. The dancers learn discipline and the importance of taking care of themselves and working hard to maintain the best physical form possible.”
