Nezaustavljiva

Totalno drukčija od drugih: ova bucmasta balerina pokazala je svijetu da kilogrami u plesu ne znače ništa

Nezaustavljiva

Kada pomislite na balet i balerine, prvo što vam padne na um su vjerojatno vitke graciozne plesačice u uskim trikoima, lepršavim haljinicama i prepoznatljivim papučicama. Međutim, da ovaj ples nije rezerviran samo za mršave djevojčice, pokazuje primjer 15-godišnje Lizzy Howell.

Ova balerina iz Delawarea netipična je po svojoj građi i težini, a postala je viralna nakon što je internet pronašao video njezine izvedbe fouettéa, kojim je osvojila tisuće poklonika.

Njezin Instagram profil sada prati preko 45 tisuća obožavatelja, a iako su joj mnogo puta rekli da bi je fizička građa mogla spriječiti u tome da postane vrhunska balerina, Lizzy pleše već 10 godina i nema u planu prestati plesati tako skoro, piše portal Inspire More.

Lizzy je također nedavno postala glasnogovornica kampanje 'Dancing for You' koja je usmjerena na djecu s posebnim potrebama, a njezinu ohrabrujuću priču možete pročitati pored fotografije.

 

Thankful to be a part of such an amazing group of dancers, supporting an amazing cause💘 #Repost @theofficial_dancingforyou with @repost app ・・・ Welcome Lizzy Howell to Our Team 💗 . . I have been dancing for 10 years now and I can tell you, the dance world is a rough place! Being an over weight dancer has come with it's struggles. I have been told numerous times by teachers that I will get no where in the dance world if I do not lose this weight. Over the years, I have learned not to care what people think! If people want to tear you down, let them and show them that you can do it! This campaign means a lot to me as I have pseudo tumor cerebri, which is an excess of fluid around my brain. I have been in the hospital many times for this and I can tell you, it was rough missing dance. Not only do I suffer from pseudo tumor, but I have severe anxiety, which has caused me to go into depression. Dance has been a way to release this anxiety and make me happy. I will be going into my 8th production of the nutcracker, my 11th dance recital this year and, my 4th NYCDA convention. I haven't given up and neither should you!
