fairies and dragons

Fashion,Outfit,Work,11 April 2015

I know it’s been a lot about ballet here lately, but once I got the hang of it I find it hard slow myself down. There is something so beautiful, personal and fragile about ballet, and I got so inspired by this gorgeous lace dress I purchased second hand from westartedthis. Ballet is the most beautiful form of art I know and the only sport I am really passionated about.

My intention was to write a long text about ballet and what it means to me, but when I started to think about it, I came to realize it’s a story I want to keep for myself. Instead I’ll let these beautiful pictures speak for themselves. I think these pictures are my absolute favorite pictures ever published in this blog. I hope you like them as much as I do.

“I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say the dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?”

-John Lennon

Prima Ballerina at 27

When I was younger I used to dance classic ballet. I loved it and I was pretty good I think. I always had trouble remembering the routines but my technique was good. I still feel strongly for ballet and I really enjoy watching a show at the opera ever now and then. It’s so graceful, elegant and extremely disciplined which makes me really appreciate it.

Ballet has played a big role in my life and it has also been very helpful in my modeling career. I have learned to know my body, how to move and I’m able to control and be aware of also smaller details like hands and fingers, that can play a big role in photographs.

Today I took a little walk through memory lane and laced up my ballet shoes. I have been wanting to look up a dance studion for some adult lessons in classic ballet and today’s twirl on the dance floor (aka living room) inspired me to do something about it. Maybe I’ll become a prima ballerina after all? Well before my big break through happen I’ll continue practicing with Greta <3.
