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 fantasy—and of course!—breathtaking choreography. Jeraldine embodies the grace and beauty of a world-class ballerina, but doesn’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. What’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.
