I know it's not fun to talk politics.... I know I could ignore this issue due to risk of losing my popularity. But why have a following if you don't share what you really believe? Let's demand a more loving way America. #Repost @refinery29
Today is #WorldRefugeeDay. This day was created to honor the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of people who have been forced to flee. For generations refugees have helped make this country diverse and culturally rich. But as we honor them today, we must also remember that our government continues to separate immigrant families at our border. While the words “refugee” and “immigrant” are NOT interchangeable terms, some immigrants are refugees who were forced to flee persecution in their home countries. We all need to do what we can to help others find peace, comfort, understanding, and most importantly, safety.

Twelve years ago today this was me... I had just been asked to attend The School of American Ballet summer program and I wanted so badly to get asked to stay for the year round term. I couldn't do a French twist yet, hadn't a clue what moving to NYC would mean, didn't know about Balanchine or Robbins, and certainly couldn't dream past getting into a world class dance school, but I DID have a dream and we all start somewhere. Why not you? Thank you @carm615 for capturing the moment all those years ago! #itstartswithadream

There is a natural confidence that develops when you become better and better at your craft, but be careful that you don't start to feel you can do ALL things related to your craft without a healthy dose of humility, bruises, roadblocks, and continuous resistance to give up. You CAN do it.... it WILL be arduous. The journey never ends ❤️Photo credit: @justinchaophotography #lovingtheprocess #stretchingourselves #onestepatatime

When you find a kindred spirit hold on to them! ❤️ They feed light to your soul and that is more valuable than gold, fame, or any earthly gift. @hollydorger you are a kindred spirit....Thank you to the Royal Danish Ballet for being such a warm and welcoming company! You all have given me a new inspiration to take back to NYC ❤️ @nikolajhubbe you are such a brilliant director/coach and it was a joy working for you for a week. I will cherish all of this deeply into my heart. Till the next time! 😘 #inspired #beyondgrateful #happy
