How gorgeous are these images? They're from this collection of vintage ballet photography by Yarn Over Movement on flickr, who also happens to have a lovely blog.

I have some news: I've joined the team of bloggers on Leeloo as their 'Perth correspondent', which means I'll be writing monthly posts at Leeloo blog, covering Perth-based Art, Fashion, Photography, Vintage, Markets and Indie designers. I wanted to put the word out about this so people will feel free to email me about artists, designers, photographers, markets and events in Perth.

Sorry I've been a bit behind in answering all your lovely comments, I was very sick yesterday, and I'm having a rather stressful week.

Beautiful. It's especially nice to see the photos of the dancers in just their work-out clothes before they get dressed up with costumes. I saw an amazing version of "Giselle" last week and now I am on an even bigger ballet kick than usual, so these were a nice treat to find in my Reader.

Beautiful. I think, that these ballets aren't so skinny like nowadays ballets and it's amazing. No skinny models, no skinny ballets - no stress, no bad influence on young girls - no anorexia etc..It's much better.
(Sorry for my bad english).
