Anonymous Story 63

“The lack of safety for young women in ballet companies has always been scary. I started dancing professionally at 17. Had zero relationship experience because “ballet was my boyfriend.” Due to my extremely strict Russian training, I was scared and obedient and just wanted to improve in the corps de ballet. No one prepared me for the older men in the companies who would see me as easy prey. That’s all I can say right now without breaking down.”
