    87. Food as MEDICINE and how I CURED my debilitating eczema!

    Today we are going to talk about something a little different but something that’s actually really close to my heart.

    I’ve been wanting to dedicate a whole episode to this topic for quite some time now in case it helps others in the Balanced Ballerinas community.

    So let's talk about how I cured my eczema!

    85. Inclusive ballet skirts and the adult ballet journey with Virginia aka. Demi Pointe Dancewear!

    85. Inclusive ballet skirts and the adult ballet journey with Virginia aka. Demi Pointe Dancewear!

    It's about time I invited Virginia (aka. Demi Pointe Dancewear!) on the podcast!

    Virginia was one of my very first adult ballet students and continues to take multiple classes with me every week.

    But what's really special is that Virginia started her small business out of my business!

    I always receive messages from people in the #BalancedBallerinas community about my students fashion and in particular everyones skirts….

    They are almost always by Virginia who creates custom, bespoke designs to suit a variety of ballet bodies and tastes.

    It's an absolute honour to share not only Virginia's small business journey, but also her personal adult ballet journey.

    Virginia is a wonderful client, student and friend who is a huge part of my studio and it’s very essence. I can’t thank her enough for the support over the past decade.

    The best place to connect with Virginia would be to head to her instagram @demipointe_dancewear and find the links to her Etsy store there!

    I also know Virginia would LOVE for you to drop into her DM’s to say hello or talk about creating a custom design for you!

    84. Five reasons why I don't regret NOT becoming a professional ballerina...

    84. Five reasons why I don't regret NOT becoming a professional ballerina...

    When I recently did a Q&A on Instagram, someone from the BB community asked me, "Do you regret not having a career as a professional ballerina?"

    What a fabulous question to explore! In this episode I break down the reasons why (with hindsight) it was not the right path for me.

    I'm excited to share my answer because it honestly highlights how much I love the work that I do...

    83. Talking to my SISTER about learning ballet during our childhood and more recently serenading me down the aisle!

    83. Talking to my SISTER about learning ballet during our childhood and more recently serenading me down the aisle!

    Whilst I'm sure you'll enjoy todays episode, it's really a selfish one as I want to capture this moment in time with my sister!

    Sophie lives in the UK and a couple of times a week I'll give her a call during my morning walk when the time difference works out perfectly.

    It was surreal to have her by my side during my morning walk this morning and half way through we decided to record a podcast episode today!

    Sophie and I learned ballet together whilst growing up, but as you'll hear we were VERY different students.

    This conversation is fun, light, sugary and full of sister love!

    After listening (or during) we'd love you to let us know if you think we sounds the same! Can you hear Sophie's slight UK accent?

On My Tip Toes For Excitement

Fascinating insights into the inner workings of the ballerina world. The interview with Paul Boyd is definitely worth listening to, such an eloquent and composed speaker.
