A Ballet Dancers Disguise – The Process

Hello! So this week I have something very exciting to share with you all. I have been working on trying different mediums to express my Studio to Street style. Along with my talented digital tech savvy friend Jacob Sofer, we have created a STOP-MOTION short video to animate the daily process of a ballet dancers style evolution. 

I begin each day layered up in the warmest gear to keep my muscles and body warm until our morning class starts. As soon as barre work begins, each layer is peeled off as my body is moving and warming up. This process continues as class progresses into centre practice, until I am so warm and stripped down to just my leotard and pink tights. 

The layers appear again when rehearsals start, in this case a classic tutu. 

Our disguise from a ballet dancer to a pedestrian that catches your tram, bus or train, is another process of change as we leave the studios and change into our individual style street wear as the day ends. 

Then we eat, sleep and repeat. 

Enjoy watching THE PROCESS- A BALLET DANCERS DISGUISE!
