“I am a ballerina, and I made this piece of artwork because I was inspired by how ballerinas dance in real life. I love dancing and imagine myself fluttering along with the night creatures listening to the chirping of crickets. I chose the origami paper for the background to reflect my Asian culture and my love of nature and flowers. I chose the glittery paper on the skirt because I like pink and shining dresses, I hope to inspire everyone to dance.”
