In a chair against the mirrors, Miguel Campaneria leans forward, left arm pointing, vein popping on bicep.

Bigger, he says. The dancer must fill the small studio space as if it were the stage. And she must roll through the foot, making contact with the floor for a softer and safer landing.
Campaneria is training a small group of girls this afternoon, two for competitions that could put them into professional dance companies, the only way he says most aspiring ballerinas can hope to have careers.
Campaneria danced through the 1990s, until he was nearly 40 years old. But by 1998, his performing days ending, and he was looking at a new career.
I didnt know how I was going to feel, because I loved dancing, he says. Now my life would be teaching. I was worried.
But later, looking at rehearsal photographs, Campaneria spots an error.
Campaneria says even as a dancer he would sit on the floor and watch others rehearse.
I had a fascination for learning, he says.
Campaneria demonstrates, then turns and holds Sydneys hands for support as she lifts herself up.
When the teenager needs a break in a difficult routine, Campaneria remembers that.
Sometimes he just tells me Stop! I want to see Sydney turn. ”
A Romeo
Dancing, Campaneria says, was his life.
On stage the small boy from Cuba could be a prince, a Romeo. He learned how to act, how to die, how to be happy.
I did love when I was a dancer, he says. But now its my life; its my life teaching them.
He exults in his students achievements.
Campaneria has no plans to retire and says he has more to learn and to contribute, still.
