Kristen. 16. late starter in ballet. sophomore. baptist. i love coffee, big sweaters, reading, history and TV. Misty Copeland, Natalie Dormer, Maria Kochetkova, Svetlana Zakharova and Taylor Swift are my idols.
"Getting a late start has its advantages. There are ballet dancers who burn out by their teens, but I was ready to go, and still hungry. My body wasn’t worn down, and I didn’t have that craving for approval that gets ingrained when you start at age 3 or 4. I was just dancing to dance, because I loved it."
