I learned the word elevé in my first ballet class. Elevé is a movement in which a dancer rises up high onto the balls of the feet. As a seven-year-old girl, the words “rise up” are what stuck with me.
I danced for twelve years, learning how to perfect a pirouette turn and performing in front of full auditoriums. The discipline you learn as a dancer is unmatched by any other sport or hobby. And that sort of discipline translates into the type of worker a dancer becomes.
Although I no longer “elevé” in the literal sense of rising to the tops of my toes, I use the word to describe the person I have become.
Ballet dancers are teachable. They have to be, or they would never be able to master the craft. They are flexible, not just in the body, but also in the mind. Ballet dancers, of all people, understand the importance of good preparation and they have the ability to learn quickly. Ballet demands an excellent memory, superior listening skills, and exceptional concentration. Finally, ballet dancers are incredibly dedicated and are full of passion.
All of these attributes I developed in my years of dancing are what have led me to starting my own business. I have taken that passion, that flexibility, that concentration, and poured it into my clients. Whatever your needs, business communications, project management, non-profit fundraising, or events; allow me to help you rise up.
