This beautiful ballerina is Bronwyn Theroux, a full time Advanced Diploma of Dance student at the National Theatre Ballet School in St Kilda – Australia’s oldest classical ballet school. I grew up with ballet and my love for it is just as strong as ever. So you can imagine how wonderful it is for me to bring together that love with my photography! This shoot was an absolutely joy from the first shutter click to the last edit, and I’m thrilled to share it with you.
I’m incredibly grateful for the chance to photograph such a talented dancer. Thank you so much Bronwyn, for your effortless grace and for the inspiration.
When you do dance, I wish you
A wave o’ th’ sea, that you might ever do
Nothing but that.
