Of dreams and hopes and love brings together glimpses of stories from three dancers.
Paige is 15-years-old and is going to be a professional ballerina.
She dreams of twirling, skirts flying and pointe shoes, whispering through love, joy, heartbreak, revenge, and an ultimate act of forgiveness, in the hauntingly romantic ballet, Giselle.
Elena is a belly dancer, inspired to dance by one of the greatest love stories you’ve probably never heard of: a slave girl who captured the heart of a sultan.

Of dreams and hopes and love is on at ArtsPost Galleries and Shop, Victoria St, Hamilton from May 26 until June 26.
