Ballet is beautiful. To the editor, ballet is a higher form of art, not a sport or just dance. Personally preferring contemporary ballet over the classical ballet, he admires the movements, the techniques and the required amount of body control the dancers apply to both directions of ballet. Ballet is not just something you do in your spare time, you have to put your mind to it in order to succeed, very strongly indeed. But apart from that, the ballet is a mystery.
Since the elder of the editors daughters is attending ballet lessons at the local ballet school, the subject “ballet” needs -and gets – much more attention. Her entry into the world of ballet happened at an age of 9, some years later than many others, starting 3 to 4 years earlier. In order to achieve results and successes, those children must activate considerable resources for endless rehearsals and excercises. Often 3 to 4 times a week. It’s impressive to see young boys and girls evolving by purposeful, disciplined and determined work. And how they achieve to play their roles gracefully and elegantly.
For her efforts, her dedication and determination she deserves her family’s recognition and praise. And I am very proud to share a few images of her on my site.
The Photos are shot at various performances – almost from the very start of her career until today.
