Acquaintance with the next woman – without any scheduled circumstances – is a rare but very pleasant phenomenon (introduction to Eglė was quite unusual).
Our meeting place – local gym. At first sight she appeared to be inexpressibly cute, charismatic and extremely charming. When we met we did not know where she lives or what she does but Eglė mentioned that she knows us and even owns some of our production!
We immediately offered her to take part in our planned photo shoot and she agreed right away. It was such an amazing feeling. Everything happened quickly and spontaneously. Soon we found out that Eglė will not stay long in Lithuania, so having her agreement we were in a hurry to get ready for the photo shoot.
We knew that if we will not be fast, next time this woman might be difficult to catch.
Thank you Egle for joining our team on the special day and helping to implement one more of our ideas.
Best wishes from across the Atlantic, hope we see you soon!
Could you please tell us where you was born and where do you live at the moment?
I am a Lithuanian girl, but at the moment I live in New York.
Why did you choose ballet? How did it come to your life?
Even though in childhood I was a chubby and short child, I always told my parents that I want to be a ballerina. Everyday I walked around the table on my fingertips thus my parents did not have other possibility but bring me to ballet lessons. I have started when I was only 5 years old and I am still dancing.
If you was not a dancer, what would be your career path?
It is a fact that dancer’s carrer is short one. I quite often think of what I would like to be when I finish my dancer’s carrer. In my drawer I have a bachelor’s thesis diploma. So maybe time will come when I will need to use it.
What does insipre you most?
My biggest inspiration is my art’s teacher Michele Wiles, who was the main singer in ABT. I have an opportunity to work with her almost everyday, learn from her, get advice and criticizing.
What is your favorite part of your ballet?
My favorite part is performances and the feeling after them.

Which part of the 24 hour day do you like mostly?
What do you consider as a best present for you?
Best present is to see positive emotions which we can receive in all forms.
How would you describe the feeling of being a part of one of the best troupe?
The feeling is unreal. This is the reason why I quite often think that we need to appreciate and enjoy every new experience given to us. I have never dreamed that I will be living and dancing in NY.
Which one would you choose: silk, cotton or lace?
How would you define happiness?
It’s very difficult to define happiness. I think it is not only personal achievements but also your surroundings, like parents, family, friends. Happiness consists of little details, faults, and big successes.
Your inner beauty secret?
The secret of inner beauty lies within a harmony with yourself and environment.
Summer, I love warmth and sun.
Beauty standards, complexes, and love for yourself… Have you experienced any of those and what could you add to this subject?
I am not sure if it fits the question but always I had low self esteem about my round face and chubby cheeks, which I still have. Still I came with an idea that exactly these things make me different thus I could not think of myself without it. I think that things, I was worried about in childhood, now are my advantages.
