Jane Rubin began in life as a ballet dancer.
In early childhood, while moving in a performance, Jane's coordination and balance were noticed. She was put in a ballet class taught by a Soloist from The National Ballet of Washington D.C. who ran a dance studio in York, Pennsylvania. That instructor soon had Jane taking class four days a week. She put Jane on point before Jane was 10 years old, earlier than the usual age.
The Ballet Instructor was encouraging Jane to dance professionally. However, she suddenly stopped teaching in Jane's pre-teens. Wanting Jane to continue, she had Jane's parents install a ballet barre in their home. However, at that time, there was nowhere else in York, PA to continue with serious dance training.
Jane paints and draws with her athletic coordination, as well as with vision.
Due to Jane Rubin's own athletic coordination and muscle memory, she can draw another athlete in motion. This art was drawn and painted by Jane Rubin during actual games — at times Jane was not even looking at the paper:
