This is one of the cutest thing I have ever seen. I so want to do a picture like this with one of the little girls at the studio at some point!

The feeling of standing behind the curtains, feeling the warmth of the stage lights, the rush of adrenalin through your body, the tightness of your leotard and tutu, and the stiffness of your pointe shoes.

"Michaela Deprince does not look like the “typical” 17 year old ballet dancer. At 5’4″, she is shorter and more muscular than most ballet dancers. She is also from Sierra Leone and all three of these are noted “problems” (with the admitted race and body type issues in ballet) for someone who just wants to dance. But that isn’t stopping her at all." --Madame Noire

Love how the pic depicts the strength it takes to be a dancer, each individual muscle a intricate part of the whole movement. Besides that, her legs go on for days!
