Bustling Ballerinas

This 2002 photograph shows young ballerinas, aged six to eight, racing through the hallways of the Casina School of Dance in New South Wales.

Returning hand in hand to their dressing room after a performance, this group of budding dancers would practice every weekend for their much-anticipated end of year recital.
