HT City - - Entertainment -

Bri­tish songstress Paloma Faith (above) has re­vealed that she was left out of bal­let school aged 10 be­cause of her “curves”. The Pick­ing Up The Pieces hit­maker said she was ejected from the dance academy she at­tended as a child be­cause she had started to show signs upon hit­ting pu­berty and grew nat­u­ral curves, re­ported Fe­male First. “I’ve had so many (knock-backs). I was thrown out of bal­let school as a 10 year old and told never to be a bal­le­rina or dancer of any kind be­cause I hit pu­berty and showed signs of hav­ing curves. Then I ended up in a dance col­lege and I nearly got thrown out of that be­cause I was a bit too naughty, send­ing in­ap­pro­pri­ate ma­te­rial around to mem­bers of staff,” she said.
