“Dancing is a good way to exercise without being hard on your body and it ~ Vianne, Ballet Participant makes me feel really good inside.”

preschool, kids and teens

Vianne wants to be an actor and likes to explore new things, so when her school offered different dance workshops, she jumped at the chance. Latin dance and hip-hop just didn’t feel right. Then she tried ballet and fell in love with everything from her pink slippers to the beautiful music to the precise positions.
