SHOUTOUT TO THE BALLET DANCERS WHO AREN’T SUPER SKINNY

SHOUTOUT TO THE BALLET DANCERS WHO AREN’T WHITE

SHOUTOUT TO THE BALLET DANCERS WHO HAVEN’T BEEN DANCING SINCE THEY WERE FOUR

SHOUTOUT TO THE BALLET DANCERS WHO STRUGGLE WITH BODY IMAGE

SHOUTOUT TO THE BALLET DANCERS WHO DEIFY THE NORM, WORK HARD, AND LOVE TO DANCE

BECAUSE YOU DESERVE TO DANCE JUST AS MUCH AS ANYONE ELSE
