Team Talk Odette! #124 - Life of a Ballet Dancer
September 30, 2013

Many of you may wonder what it is really like to be a ballet dancer and become a professional.

Well, it is a busy and hard working lifestyle which you have to dedicate yourself to 100%.

Every rehearsal and performance you have to give your fullest effort, because it is not only your passion and love to dance, but it is also your job.

Although it does not always feel like a 'job', every dancer will look forward to having some time to rest after a long week or day. Even if it just a few hours off!

You can see my ballet companies page here to get more insight in becoming a professional -

Best wishes,


P.S - The quote of the day is: “I believe that dance came from the people and should always be delivered back to the people". - Alvin Ailey
