To become a classical ballerina, you have to move to New York when you're 12 or 11 and that becomes your life. I just wanted to be good in my company in Charleston and I wanted it to always be part of my life.
— Jennifer Garner

I was a ballerina for 10 years growing up, but I stopped.
Amy Smart ballerina quote

— Dakota Fanning

— ballerina quotation by Diane Kruger
