Maiko: Dancing Child

Described Video:
Maiko Nishino's destiny was decided before she was born. Her name, Maiko, means dancing child. Her mother, the driving force behind her career, sold their house and car to send 14-year-old Maiko to the most prestigious dancing schools in Europe. Today, at 32, Maiko is at the top of her career as a prima ballerina at the Norwegian National Ballet, but her decision to start a family might jeopardize everything she has worked for.
