newyorketc:

I talked to Michaela DePrince on the subway yesterday. I recognized her but couldn’t remember her name (awkward), so I basically justed asked her if she was a ballerina and chatted a little from there.

She’s incredible. She was orphaned in Africa, was adopted by Americans, and is on her way to becoming and elite ballet dancer. Michaela’s one of the kids profiled in First Position, a new documentary I’ve heard great things about.

It’s a sign. I need more ballet in my life, stat.

Amen.
