Team Talk Odette! #172 - A Ballerinas Life
August 04, 2014

When I was younger, I aspired to be like the professional ballet dancers. I jumped at the chance to watch them in rehearsals, performances and read interviews to enter inside the ballet world.

If you're anything like me, I was intrigued to what it was like to be a ballet dancer. What is their life like? What is a ballet company like? What do they do in the day-to-day life?!

Well, now I know, the lifestyle of a ballet is a busy and dedicated one. Of course, you are pursuing your passion and striving for what you spent your life training for. Yet it can also be more physically and mentally demanding than you think.

That's why, it's always good to have a balance in your life. You know the saying - work hard, play hard. Keep that in mind! Remain dedicated to what you want, but enjoy yourself too.

Next week I'll give you a day in the life of my schedule as a professional!

For now, look at these great ballerinas for inspiration -

Best wishes,


P.S - The quote of the day is: "Beauty comes from happiness."
