balletomane


in need of some mindless escapism, i don't know what possessed me, but i have started a tumblr dedicated to vintage ballet entitled balletomane vintage, & also a flickr group, so please share & join both. no wonder i never sleep.
balletomane is a russian word created in the nineteenth century to describe ballet fans & enthusiasts!

  3. I love it! I do love ballet, though, I'm probably more of a moderndanceomane.
