From project “Baby Ballerinas” by Lisa Hogben.
At an Eistedford, in Sydney Australia, the backstage world of the Baby Ballerina is exposed in this photo essay. Amid the tensions, drama and competition of the world of the tutu clad six and seven year olds remind us of an age of innocence. The beauty of the bonds and support the children give one another through their performances reminds us of a world where all things are equal and just being there is the key to life.
