Muslim teen wants to be first professional hijabi ballerina...

Muslim

This Muslim dancer is raising the barre...

Sydney schoolgirl Stephanie Kurlow wants to become the first hijabi ballerina in the world - and to open a dance school for girls of all backgrounds to pirouette in her footsteps.

“Dancing is like flying for me. It makes me feel free,” the poised 14-year-old tells the Daily News.

“All I want is to share the beauty of the amazing ballet art form,” she continues, “and inspire other young people who maybe don’t feel so confident to follow their dreams due to the outfits they wear, religious beliefs or lack of opportunities.”

Kurlow began dancing when she was two years old, and performed with the Riverside Theatre until 2010, when she converted to Islam with her two brothers, Australian father and Russian-born mother.
