We love seeing #yagpalumni helping each other out! When @julianmackay was in a tough spot, @skylarbrandt jumped to the rescue - and flew to Russia! Repost @julianmackay
When I was first contacted to be a part of @bigballetofficial I knew it would be a challenge, and always up for the challenge I accepted. Exactly what an adventure it would turn out to be I had no idea. In preparation for this project I flew to Paris to rehearse with one of the @balletoperadeparis ballerinas who I was scheduled to dance with. With a short timeline to rehearse we were making every day count. A week before filming was to begin my partner injured herself on tour🤕 leaving me partnerless with 5 full pas de deux’s to perform, 2 of which were completely new works., it looked like all of the hard work I had put in would come to nothing.😱...... then as if in a dream @skylarbrandt appeared 💥😅 and with 2 days notice was already in Paris rehearsing with me.....giving us 3 days to put everything together🙌🏼 all I can is that at every turn she has been unbelievably amazing and easy to work with 🌟.
Thank you for existing Skylar .💙
