An Interview with Aesha Ash, Founder of The Swan Dreams Project

Previously a professional ballet dancer, Aesha Ash is an alumna of the School of American Ballet and a former dancer with multiple companies including the New York City Ballet, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne in Switzerland, as well as Alonzo King Lines Ballet.

Despite having retired, Ash still finds herself on tippy-toe for a greater cause. Starring the former ballerina and shot by Renee Scott, Arleen Thaler and Daryl Thaler, The Swan Dreams Project (an homage to the legendary ballet Swan Lake and its coveted role, the White Swan) is a photography series that challenges stereotypes and endorses young dreams.
