I was lucky enough to be invited to a private screening of the film Black Swan, courtesy of Frame in Shoreditch. Once I arrived I was sized up, literally(!), and kitted out with a Bloch ballet pack consisting of a black leotard, pink tights and black satin ballet shoes (very on trend). I looked very professional for my following Black Swan themed ballet class (sorry, not including pictures of me in the obvious reasons).
MAC were on-hand to re-create the amazing make-up, or just plump a lip or embellish our eyes. the class music was the soundtrack of the film for the most part. I even got to learn a *ahem* simple routine to the dance of the Black Swan. Move over Portman.
Check out Frame at moveyourframe.com. It's not full of the usual mind-numbing work-outs. They do things like Jane Fonda Aerobics and Glee Classes! Frame are doing a Black Swan season too, every Saturday throughout the month of Feb - see the film and get inspired to release that inner ballerina.
So, the film. Haven't you heard enough about what everyone thinks? It's brilliant, I dare you to go in pink tights.
