Brittany, Bianca and Michelle dance for the Ballet Theatre of San Luis Obispo. Graceful, beautiful, elegant, sweet… I could go on and on about these wonderful young ladies. These girls were mature way beyond their years and just full of personality. Thank you all for waking up at the crack of dawn to model in the freezing cold. I will do a separate post of each ballerina with some group shots at the end. First up, the lovely Bianca. She is a 17 year old high school student who is very multi-talented… singer/songwriter, actress, ballerina and the current reigning Miss Teen California Latina.
I’d like to thank Amanda Gilbert of Untamed Petals, New York for the gorgeous hair adornments. I wish you all could see these accessories in person, truly a work of art. (By the way, Amanda’s hair accessories were used in the dance shoot on America’s Top Model this week – congratulations!!).
Art Direction, Hair + Makeup, Set Design & Styling was done by the unbelievably talented Emily Baker of Frenchie and Flea and her assistant Annie. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! That’s all I have to say. Please visit Frenchie and Flea to learn more about this session from her perspective.
Finally, I’d like to thank Theresa Slobodnik, the director of the Ballet Theatre of San Luis Obispo for all of her support in this project.
** The Ballet Theatre of San Luis Obispo will be performing Coppélia on April 24-25 at the Performing Arts Center in San Luis Obispo. I can’t wait to see these three girls on stage, I know they will be fantastic. **
