DanceWear Corner Spotlight Dancer Lauren Mortimer

Lauren Mortimer did a beautiful photo shoot with Jessica Wallis and Alexis Ziemski from Ballet in the City, but we wanted to know a little bit more about her.    

1. What did you love about the experience?

I was honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with Dancewear Corner and Ballet in the City for a photo shoot to model dancewear.  I loved modeling and posing in beautiful dancewear and accessories outside, while it snowed.  Jessica Wallis and Alexis Ziemski are awesome to work with and we had fun traveling to a greenhouse for the photoshoot too.  Alexis is an amazing photographer! It’s an experience that I will never forget.

 

2. What challenges have you overcome in dance and how has that made you a better dancer?

One of the biggest challenges that I had to overcome in dance was four years ago.  I broke my foot five weeks before my studio’s recital.  I was in a boot cast for 3 ½ weeks and had little time to rehab my foot before the recital.  I managed to strengthen my foot and perform in seven numbers.  This injury taught me to focus, even more, on proper technique.  More ballet classes make a stronger dancer!

3. What they liked about the dancewear?

Dancewear Corner provided leotards, tights, Capezio leggings, and other accessories from “Crushing It” the Nutcracker Collection including a white crop tee, bag, white tumbler, and lip balm for the photoshoot.   The dance attire was beautiful, stylish, and most important, easy to move in.  The Nutcracker Collection is perfect for the upcoming holiday season.  I love all of the items!

 

 

4. What’s next for you in the world of dance?

In the coming year, I plan to attend more Ballet in the City master classes.  I am preparing for spring dance competitions, our dance studio’s recital, and a trip to NYC.  Thank you to Dancewear Corner and Ballet in the City for selecting me for this project.  I had so much fun!

If I didn’t have to sleep I would go to Disneyland!!

Introducing DanceWear Corner Model: Ballet in the City Ambassador Gabriella Morando

A few weeks ago we were happy to collaborate with Ballet In The City and their resident photographer Alexis Ziemski for a special photo shoot!  Two lucky Ballet In The City Ambassadors were outfitted with some awesome DanceWear Corner merchandise and hit the city for a great modeling session.  We caught up with ambassador, Gabby Morando, to hear a little about her experience shooting for DanceWear Corner.

I was thrilled to be invited to do this project, and I absolutely LOVED having the opportunity to pose in such beautiful dancewear in the most fun locations!  Alexis is so amazing to work with, and her photos always turn out looking like art.  Modeling gorgeous dance clothes and posing in pointe shoes on a college campus and in front of a crowded Starbucks was surreal and awesome.

Dancewear Corner provided me with beautiful leotards, tights, and a skirt for the photo shoot, as well as a wonderfully soft DWC logo tank top that I have been wearing a lot since then.  The clothing was really comfortable, fit me perfectly, and looked great in the pictures.  I love the long lace sleeves and color of the navy leo, and the gray one has such a pretty strappy back.

Learning to pose for photographs is all part of being a dancer, and this experience really taught me a lot.  I’m so lucky to have these photos to use as part of my portfolio, too.  It’s so exciting to see myself in social media posts for Dancewear Corner and Ballet in the City!

I would be sooooo happy to be able to do more collaborations like this!! It was a great privilege to represent Dancewear Corner and Ballet in the City in this way, and I would be so honored to do it again.  Thank you so much for choosing me for this project!

“This was such a great experience because I was able to work with my favorite photographer, wear beautiful dancewear, and represent Ballet in the City and DanceWear Corner, both of which I LOVE!”

“I loved the dancewear! The DWC crop top was my favorite! It freed my movement while still looking stylish! I’ve already worn my new black leotard to my Performing Arts School and received many compliments on the unique back! The red leotard was so elegant with a functional yet classy feel.”

“I would absolutely love and wish for another opportunity to represent DanceWear Corner, Alexis, and Ballet in the City again! This was an AMAZING opportunity for me and I appreciate all of you so, so much, THANK YOU!!!”
