Dance and music teacher Lesya Kostenko leads a dance rehearsal at the Chernobyl Community Center in Borodyanka. Her students are all 14-year-old girls from Novoe Zalesye, a resettlement village four miles outside of town and more than 40 miles from the power plant. Unlike those in towns closer to Chernobyl, residents of Borodyanka report that they now look at the accident and aftermath as a historical event rather than an ongoing problem.<br />
