For more details on Rose + her life, click here.
She is also in training at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow, Russia.
She's now a friend, but was originally a friend of a friend. I was stalking her instagram feed (Russia is sort of an obsession of mine.), and it didn't actually click with me that she was going to Russia to train at the Bolshoi until I recognized the carpet in one of her photos. Yup, the carpet, how iconic. Anyway, at that point, I had to know more.
Whats in your ballet bag right now?
Pointe shoes, soft shoes, foam roller (can't live without it), tennis ball, bio freeze, perfume, gum, stitch kit, skirt, sweater (to keep my back warm).
Describe a typical (I use typical for lack of a better word, there's nothing typical about this.) day for you at the Academy.
I wake up at seven, warm up until eight, have classes till six with a hour lunch break in the middle. Then I go out for a little, then I come back to do homework and stretch till eleven.
Do you feel that ballet, has influenced your personal style? Has moving to Russia evolved this as well?
Ballet has a lot of sparkles involved. I'd say that's what's mostly in my closet haha. As for Russia, definitely. I'm from California so I don't have to dress practical. But because of the weather in Moscow you have to. Lots of scarfs, leather, fur and accessories
What do you do in your free time for fun?
I'm always ready for some coffee with my friends! Starbucks for life. Walking around at night, shopping at ГУМ (GOOM) in Red Square. Recently my friends and I started watching "Gossip Girl" from the beginning. So addicting, haha.
What's it like being Rose?
Living each day to the fullest! I'll never forget how lucky I am to have these opportunities! It's only up from here! My dream is to graduate from the academy and dance for the Bolshoi Ballet Company.
