Ever since our mum dropped us off at that first ballet class at 5 years old, we learnt that it is every girl's dream to dance Swan Lake. And indeed it is still some of the shopgirls' dream.
And as we sat in the Sadler Well's Theatre staring lost into Mathew Bourne's rendition we couldn't help but be amazed and inspired by the boys taking on the role.
It also left us feeling a bit jealous and like we needed to claim back our right to feathers, tiaras and everything intensely girly, to make up for the fact that we won't ever move as gracefully as those boys. Good news is we have 3 floors worth of the cure.
We suggest going to see this beautiful ballet if you find yourself in London in the next month. It's an amazingly inspirational way to kick off 2014. And if it leaves you feeling the same as us, come over for an injection of tulle and pink!
