tutu and tea

My name is Babette and I am 17 years old. Ballet is my passion & escape. Art is my way of life.

I believe that art is not what you see. but rather what you make others see. As dancers we go through blood, sweat and tears for what we love. When we go out on stage we do not care about what has been or what will be, we live in the moment. The adrenaline rushes through our bodies as we move. The heart speeds up. We might be nervous, we might be scared, and we might not. One thing I can assure you that every single dancer, no matter if your a ballerina or do hip hop. We all share one thing: love for our art.

We can’t hate ourselves into a version of ourselves we can love.
