An Ode to Dancing Moms

A Photographic Celebration of Ballerina Moms…

Just in Time for Mother’s Day!

 Do you know a dancing or dance-loving mom? Take note!


A moving collection of behind-the-scenes black-and-white photos of ballerina moms and their babies has recently been published–and it is gorgeous. The Collection, Balancing Acts: Three Prima Ballerinas Becoming Mothers, is the culmination of a 14-year collaboration with the San Francisco Ballet.

The photos speak for themselves, but when photographer Lucy Gray speaks, the impact is solidified. Here’s the conclusion to her interview on

Half the workforce in this country is comprised of women. Why not support them? Can we accept that they are valuable in the workforce? Can we accept that women have children, especially young women who need to support them? It feels like a moment when the culture might listen to new possibilities. My hopes are high. I believe in ambition.
