Private Project

Who I Am

Just as it only takes a spark to start a fire, it only takes one chance encounter to reinvigorate a forgotten and abandoned dream. Inspired by true events, this is a story about a young woman reflects back on how she traded away her dream to be a professional ballet dancer for a corporate career, only to discover years later that despite her best attempts, her passion and love for dance never died.
