Event description

About this Event

Who is biscuit ballerina?

A soloist with Royal Ballet of Flanders, Shelby is known for her biscuity antics making light of how dancers put up a facade of perfection - especially on social media. She reminds all that ballet isn't as effortless and consistently perfect as many dancers portray through their filtered Instagrams. Biscuit Ballerina's arrogance and ignorance of her flaws (or lack of desire to acknowledge them!) are satirical renditions of what the dance world sees every day on social media.

What is Biscuit Ballerina's overall message?

Nobody is perfect. Everyone who dances has started from the same place and experienced the same frustrations at one point or another They can relate to each other more than they know, and through that, encourage one another. Dancers dance for the joy it brings them.

Don't let perfectionism stop you from experiencing that joy!

This event forms part of Dance Ireland's Healthier Dancer Days programme (4-6 Nov), which is focused on physical and mental resilience in the life of a dancer.
