Sending lots of love and well wishes to our collaborator @melika.dez who’s newest photography exhibit opens today in Montreal! 💜
Strength in diversity. In a world where the ballerina “has to look” a certain way, we decided to showcase the beauty of these unconventional but extremely talented dancers and break the boundaries of stereotypes.
We are now 6 days away from PLI.Ē @plieproject opening night! We are definitely feeling the excitement!
