“I was inspired by the ever lovely Trump Chapel here in Central Virginia. I reached out to our local ballet troupe, Charlottesville Ballet, and they connected me with these two lovely dancers: Grace and Cesar. It was an absolute joy working with each of them and I learned so much about how ballet works. Grace is here from New Zealand and Cesar is from Mexico. Both shared some great stories about their different schools and training.”
