beauty like this is almost haunting...

i saw this a few days ago and immediately knew i had to share it. i know you may not be as obsessed with ballet as i am, but this is beautiful nonetheless! the videography, the dancing, the outfits (ChloƩ), janie's long beautiful hair, the music, it kind of gives me chills. you may or may not know this already, but one of my biggest, and longest running dreams, is to dance professionally. ballet has always mesmerized me, and my love for the art hasn't faltered since i was 5. i have regretfully come to terms with the fact that the new york city ballet has no use for a 29-year-old amateur, so i'll just settle for dancing with my ballet videos in my den, and of course watching pure art and magic like this...

  3. I've had the SAME dream, but I too have also given up on it because I don't think they could handle a 25 year old who may have the heart of a professional ballerina, but two left feet in reality. The video was beautiful! I had only seen the photographs of this (which are STUNNING by the way), so thanks for sharing the video!!

  5. so gorgeous! I've always been fascinated by ballet too... except I couldn't even hold my arm in the air correctly. Ha. SO clumsy over here... My mother on the other hand was very into ballet until she broke both her knees at age 20. Bummerrr.

    Your comment on my new dress was so funny just now! I'm almost positive you might be the reason for that trade in fact, thanks to the etsy activity feed and all - I hope I didn't snatch it out from under you! It's really lovely. Eek!

  6. Wow.
    That was stunning, and the way it was filmed was really good too.

    I've secretly always wanted to be a dancer but I feel I'll never have the time or the flexibility to do that in life. That's okay.

  11. I've always wanted to be a dancer but I'm more of a rockette girl, myself. Too bad 5'3" isn't their ideal height.

  12. Beautiful video. I would love to do that. Too bad I'm not so dainty and fluid. *sigh* But a girl can dream, right?

  14. i have absolutely zero grace, but watching this video just totally reignited my childhood ballet dreams. what little girl didn't want to be ballerina at some point? but...since i lack talent completely....i'd just settle for the pretty outfits :).

    love you lady!

    xo!!
