Role Models

By Ballerinablogger
Recently in summer camp we had a class on the history of ballet. In this class we discussed our personal dance role models. Whether they're Margot Fonteyn or Sylvie Guillem, the range of ballerinas throughout the ages varies a drastic amount. What I'd like to know is who are your role models? What is the ballerina you look up to more than anyone else and aspire to one day be like?
My ballerina role model is Misty Copeland.

Role ModelsThis girl proves that you don't have to be 5'7" to be a ballerina. (Despite her deceptively long lines she is only 5'2") She is she the first African American soloist with the American Ballet Theatre and is also a very curvy woman. She also proves that you don't have to be an A cup to be a professional ballerina. She continues to inspire me on a daily basis.
Do you have anyone like this in your life? If so then tell us in a comment below!
Thanks for reading!
