Hello everyone, in the past few months my life was on the high notes: I went to the Salento area to visit a tailor shop called “Degas” where you can create your tutù for ballet competitions or shows. It can be considered a normal dance shop because you can find ballet shoes, leotards, skirts, pointe shoes and all the necessary for every ballet dancer!😍 It seemed I was in another world!
Here, a beautiful and vibrant tailor showed me how to create a professional or semi-professional tutù.
First of all, she showed me which fabrics I want for this tutù. She asked me what kind of ballet opera I would like to do and I said: Aurora from “The Sleeping Beauty”. Then we started to create my tutù. I chose a white tutù with 7 veils and a particular lace with floreal decorations sewn by hand on tutù. Then I wanted to add a short sleeve on my arms and a beautiful sparkling tiara. In that way I felt like a princess from Disney films, it was a beautiful experience, I couldn’t believe that I was performing my solo on stage.
The staff was incredible, the result of their good work was exceptional, they were always available for me and I’m so grateful because they have realized my dream and my need in less than a month.
Due to living in a family of five where only the father provides for everyone’s school needs, it’s Christmas time and I am in need of funds, only with your great help I can reach my goals and dreams. Every donation, small or large is much appreciated.
