She saw the Nutcracker when she was 3 and all she could ever
(or Bannerina as she called it:)
Nashville Ballet II for this year.
We often receive questions as to what she is up to and it is awesome
to know so many care!
However, we have also heard a lot of misinformation
about my sweet girl, which is unfortunate.
So here I am, MamaBear, setting the record straight.
Because she DESERVES that.
And in the process, I get to write one last ballet post.
(Please forgive me for all the pictures, but I couldn't resist:)
integrity, morals and values intact.
Like everyone, she's made a few honest mistakes.
But she has been and always will be a wonderful role model for younger girls.
bright is the saddest thing ever.
She is my Soldier, Harlequin, Spanish Dancer, Snowflake, Snow Queen, Dew Drop, Sugarplum Fairy and her dream.......Clara.
PRINCES and CAVALIERS:)
those ballerinas on their toes...........pay a steep price, trust me.
She has danced through nerves and wardrobe malfunctions.
Because of this, she can confidently say that she has danced the roles she dreamed of
and hopefully made many in the
for her already, because of ballet, are incredible.
Ohio with Ballet Met, Maine with Bossov Ballet,
Boston with Boston Ballet, Chicago with Joffrey Ballet
and in various places around Florida, including Naples Ballet and her first real training grounds with Ballet Florida in W. Palm Beach.
She has danced for Opera Naples and many community events.
Taylor even spent a few years modeling ballet costumes and poses for
a local artist/art teacher.
(ahem.....this will always be her nickname around here:)
well, that and Taylorina Ballerina. heeheehee
( on 3rd St in Naples.)
After only a few months, she was approached by them to train for a promotion.
smiling face was noticed by somone one night and she was offered
a wonderful position with Michael Kors at Waterside shops.
(as in "project runway" Michael Kors:)
She is now working there and absolutely loves it!
(And she may be meeting Mr. Kors himself very soon, so she is SUPER excited:)
She has also had other offers but that might be considered bragging.......
and we don't do that, right?;)
She still wants to perform in some way, shape or form.
Dancing, Acting or (Disney Princess maybe????)
In fact, she is teaching ballet to young girls at the Boys and Girls Club of Naples,
on behalf of her school, Naples Academy of Ballet.
Taylorina the ballet teacher!!!
Teaching is much harder than one might think and she has a lot to learn,
but she LOVES it!
........with a twist;)
It may be her decision and her life,
Taylor will be your biggest cheerleader!
She loves passing on little tips she has learned along the way.
At least at the beginning of your career.
never regret these years
That's probably why she wants to keep it in her life.
stop in Michael Kors store
She gets SO excited when someone she knows comes in:)
Taylorina/Sugarplum...........you'll always be our star.
BRAVA, beautiful girl.
You did yourself proud:) And you made all of us proud too:)
A.K.A proud mama
