Ballet has always fascinated me (even beyond my failed attempt as a little girl). It’s one of the most beautiful artistic uses of the human body… but I think what draws me in even more are the costumes. As a little girl, I was pretty disappointed that my first ballet class didn’t directly involve wearing a glittery tutu and pointe shoes. That crushed my dreams right there… I was set on being a prima ballerina right away! Maybe that’s why it didn’t quite work out between us.
I figure the only way we can work out is if I sketch them; and one day I’m going to convince them to let me sketch backstage.
