Ballet

Shuriu began dancing ballet later in life.  She still schedules her life around classes, cross-training, and rehearsals.  She is currently looking for a low-rent studio with sprung floor that will allow her to choreograph classical and contemporary ballets again.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing these images! You look amazing!! It fills my heart with joy that you were there across from me and gave me the strength to keep going! Thank you! My favorite though is the back and white pose of you in arabesque and the classical tutu. You have georgeous lines!

    • Oh, Kathleen. It was my honor to dance with you. I respect your technique, your dedication, and seriously wish I had your feet and turns! Get better soon 😉 xoxo
