It was so much fun this week to do a "My Ballet Journal" workshop for aspiring young ballerinas at the National Museum of Dance in Saratoga Springs, NY.   

Here the children are meeting the New York City Ballet dancers, Lydia Wellington (my daughter and collaborator on the project!), Meagan Mann, and Megan Johnson. 

Then they broke up into small groups and rotated around the three workshops. 

They learnt how to do French twists and Balanchine buns from Lydia.

They picked up make-up tips from Meagan Mann.

And Megan Johnson answered their many questions about pointe shoes

What a lovely group of young ballerinas! I hope they have lots of fun writing and drawing in their ballet journals. Good luck to them all in pirouetting to their dreams!
