    the ballet world is one of horror.

    as an ex-ballerina myself, this was way too close to home. in the world of ballet, we are taught to always strive for perfection. so you do, however unattainable that perfection may be. you slowly kill yourself over it. you find yourself becoming the worst version you can be – because ballet teaches you that you have to be perfect or else you’re a failure. you become envious of other dancers. you turn…

    Fuck.

    Intense, claustrophobic, exhilarating, pulsating, anxiety-ridden madness. I feel out of breath.
