"Let your downhills carry you uphill."
greypoppies:

Jadin Wong, a Chinese-American burlesque dancer and actress. She ran away from her strict Chinese family as a teenager to go to Hollywood to be a dancer,  and performed in Hong Kong, Paris, Cuba, Germany and New York and entertained American troops during World War II.  She studied with Balanchine and trained in classical ballet and jazz.  (She even performed ballet right into her 90s, where she was caught by an interviewing journalist doing splits and pirouettes as “morning exercise”.)  She appeared in dozens of movies and ultimately opened a talent agency specializing in finding jobs for Asian-American performers in movies, TV and Broadway.
