Oct 15, 2014 >> #5MinutesWith Jeraldine Mendoza [VIDEO]
Meet Jeraldine Mendoza, the prima ballerina who is about to take center stage in the first ever production of Swan Lake by award winning Chicago-based ballet company, the Joffrey. Inspired by Edgar Degas, the ballet-within-a-ballet combines classical elements with a modern vision and a touch of fantasyâ€”and of course!â€”breathtaking choreography.
Jeraldine embodies the grace and beauty of a world-class ballerina, but doesnâ€™t let her unique personality and style disappear into the wings. She has caught the attention of the public eye as a recipient of the pretigious Leonore Annenberg Fellowship Fund and you can even keep up with her adventures through her blog, A Window Seat View: Fly With Me.
Whatâ€™s more feel good and beautiful than following your dreams? Jeraldine dishes about her career in dance: the feel good beauty moments of movement and finally performing the role of her dreams.
