Today I’m talking to Flik Swan and Victoria Marr. They are classically-trained ballerinas, professional dancers and the co-founders of Sleek Ballet Fitness, which combines fitness training with the steely strength of classical ballet technique. We talk about what its like starting a business with your best friend, taking risks, the identity crisis that can often come with career shift, motherhood and more.
If you are curious to try out Sleek Technique for yourself (I’m a big fan), head to sleekballetfitness.com where you can take advantage of a 7-day free trial.
