Satyros Phil Brucato writes for this card:

Innocence Dances beyond despair. For all the shit that life throws at us, the Innocent cannot be entirely defeated. Inviting you to left yourself above the ruins of mortality, this Dancer demonstrates graceful strength far beyond her apparent means. However fragile she appears, Innocence endures.
Like Classical ballet, however, innocence demands a heavy price. Both disciplines force us to stretch ourselves to the breaking point, defying the usual limits of mind, body, soul and circumstance. A wrong move can spell disaster, and so mindfulness and constant practice form the foundations of ballet and innocence. Despite impressions of childlike frivolity, the Innocent is a rebel, casting herself against oppression with strength of body, heart and will.

A very spiritual piece and I like how the pile of mundane objects suggests to me that there is something beyond what they eye can see.

You should check out the show 'Princess Tutu'. I know, I know... it's an anime made for children but it actually is very well done and focuses a lot of the telling of stories through ballet. It has it's corny bits but this piece really reminded me of the climax ballet scene :)

It may just be my interpretation, but I'm sensing some Les Miserables vibes
