So we all know I’m a dancer in my spare time, and I love it. So imagine my sheer joy when I got the opportunity to do a ballet photo shoot. Living out my ballet and model fantasies? YES PLEASE THANK YOU WHERE DO I SIGN?
I asked my bestie Elfi to come along with me, and basically be a dance mom. Not that I didn’t want to do it by myself, but I figured it would be just WAY more fun to have a friend there. Turns out: I made an excellent choice when I asked Elfi, because she went into FULL dance mom mode. I literally heard her say: “omg I’m gonna cry” about three times, and I wasn’t even doing anything spectacular. Honestly, get you an Elfi. Elfi is supportive as heck.
Anyway, it was SO much fun. I was basically just doing things that I normally do whenever there’s enough space, but now in a professional setting with a face that was beat for the GODS. My makeup was so on point I didn’t want to take it off.
I was actually a fairy princess with all that glitter on my face. I’ve never felt so elegant in my life.
It was also so much more tiring than I expected it to be. I figured I’d just be doing a few ballet poses, not actually dancing. And yes, that’s true, but trying to get everything exactly right for every shot really takes it out of you.
But really, I had the best time. I love dancing and in a different universe where I’m taller, I’m definitely working to make it as a model. Just living my ultimate ballerina / model fantasies, with my bestie there for support? A day to cherish forever.
