Not to be a hippo, but the pronoun “I” is probably the most dangerous unit in the English language. The only time I consciously pay attention to grammar is in the avoidance of this pronoun. A perfectly good piece is easily spoiled by too many “I’s”.
It’s the linguistic equivalent of a Red Savina habanero pepper: a little bit goes a long way, and if not carefully deployed it ruins everything in its proximity.

And they tried to come up with a back story for each of their characters, even though the script does not give them a chance to tell the personal histories of the ballet girls.”
