ADULT BALLET BLOGGERS
There are so many online resources for adult ballet dancers but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start.

twirls4thoughts.com Zoe grew up dancing in a small-town RAD studio. After high school she thought she’d be done with dance, but it didn’t take her long to realise that ballet is a hage part of who she is. She now dances in college while also fulfilling her love for the art form by watching, reading, and writing about it! Twirls for Thought aims to democratise the ballet critique. Thoughtful and analytical dance commentary should not be considered esoteric, nor should it be left to the shrinking number of full time dance critics employed by magazines and newspapers around the world. Ballet is a living, breathing, inclusive art form worthy of our attention. So twirl along!
