While getting ready for an in studio dress rehearsal and kept hearing these really cute little giggles. As I looked to where they were coming from two pairs of big bright eyes made eye contact with me and then looked at each other with lots of excitement. These two adorable girls were Sage and Anna. Over the next few months while rehearsing and performing I got to talk to and know Sage and Anna and their precious personalities. They are both aspiring ballerinas and were just so excited that a professional ballet dancer from the company would acknowledge them and talk with them. Little did they know that talking with them made my day!
Their joyfulness and passion reminded me of the reasons why I started dancing, their positivity made me optimistic even on the worst of days and watching them grow and improve as dancers every time they came to ballet made me inspired. Getting to be a mentor to them and be a person they can look up to is something that makes me so happy and fulfilled. Im excited to follow Sage and Anna as they continue dancing and I can’t wait to see all of the amazing things they will accomplish in life !
Happy National Women in sports day ! Did you know that girls drop out of sports 2x’s as fast as boys ?! I can’t imagine my life if I had dropped out of ballet. Even if I had not pursued ballet as a career it has helped shape me to become the woman I am today. If you have a sister, a nice, a daughter or even just a younger aspiring female in your sport take a moment to let them know how awesome it is that they follow their dreams and passions. Encourage them to continue their sport, encourage them to push boundaries and most importantly encourage them to be the best versions of themselves!
Anna, Sage and I are wearing Athleta. I am wearing Athleta’s Womens Action Mesh Trainer 7/8 Tights in black and thier Hyper focused Support Top in Violet Bluch. The girls are wearing The Athelta Girls Meshin Around Capri Balck and Power Up Teein Purple Flourish Neon Heather. It was really special to wear matching outfits with Sage and Anna. When they came over and I gave them thier outfits Anna almost burst of excitement and exclaimed that this was her new FAVORITE outfit ! The elasticity and stretch of the fabrics allowed us to do all of our ballet movements and they were so comfy even to lounge around it. One of my favorite features was the drawstring on my leggings. It is inside the pants so you cant see them and connected so it wont get lost!
