Swan


Ballet has always been my first love. I will never forget my fascination with ballerinas and how I begged my mom to get me started at ballet school at a very early age. To me, there is nothing like the form and beauty of ballet. Growing up as a ballerina, I learned that the discipline, hard work and end result of the dance was something I was passionate about and to this day, I am grateful for what is has taught me. 

As an adult, I now have a career in my second love... fashion. I no longer go on stage and dance ballet but I think the dancer will always be in me. It has taught me how to be good in other forms of dance and sometimes, I like to put back my toe shoes and twirl just like I used to.

  20. Wow, I had no idea that you were/are a ballerina! I say are because you'll never forget all of what you've learned, it has become apart of you, especially in something so rigorous, such as ballet and dance in general! Look at those legs, omg, girl they're amazing! I also love the quote you've shared, so true! Thanks so much for sharing your passion and a little more about you with us :) I hope you're having a great week so far!

  34. I did ballet for years when I was younger. Though after a certain point even though I really loved it I didn't have the time to put the dedication needed to continue progressing. Seeing this post brings back memories :) it's pretty amazing that you have kept it up
