Untapped Dancer Story: Who Would Accept Me?

Julija Kaulinytė

Kaunas • Lithuania

I am willing to continue on improving my dancing and become a great ballet teacher one day to inspire and help pupils to be the best they can be.

I never went to a professional ballet school and sometimes I wonder, 'What if...?'. Although with my poor turnout and flat feet who would have wanted to accept me anyways? It took years to discover my advantages and learn to work with what I have got. Being on a heavier side due to my thyroid problems, from time to time I still need to remember not to judge myself but dance with all of my soul. The art comes from the inside and our goal must be to make people feel together with us. I am willing to continue on improving my dancing and become a great ballet teacher one day to inspire and help pupils to be the best they can be.
