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.


British ballerina Phyllis Bedells (9 August 1893 – 2 May 1985). Seen here on 7th July 1916. She was a founding member of the Royal Academy of Dance.

Am I the only one who thinks she is freaking adorable?

A girl in my creative writing class said this in response to a story we read about witnessing intimate partner violence and it really fucked with my head because I’ve never, ever, ever, thought of it that way. (via staininyourbrain)

When women scream you wonder what’s wrong with them. When men yell you get afraid about what they’re going to do.
