~♡~Fashion in Ballet
"There is always a reason to feel fashionable when you are training/dancing. That was my main interest in becoming an ambassador for Freda Silk“
"Ballet fashion gives a special confidence to each dancer“
"The right skirt completes every ballerina‘s outfit!“😉
Dance for me is Harmony, Passion & Expression
