Student Narrative

A quilted book about my experience with ballet. How it served as a comforting and freeing act while simultaneously existing to control and manipulate my mind and body. Comparing this to when I was a child playing with Barbies. Although the barbie was under my control, it offered me freedom and comfort in the form of play. However at the same time, the Barbie influenced my body image and feminine ideals in the same way ballet did.
