What do you dream about in terms of your career after your parental leave?
I hear many people say that it is enriching to be a dancing parent. Since the child will become the focal point of my life, I imagine that I will tackle work-related stress easier. I am interested in seeing how I will grow by nurturing a new life into this world.
My husband, Jonatan Davidsson, a soloist at the Royal Swedish Ballet, and I would love to dance together more in the future. We had so much fun performing Alice and the White Rabbit in Christopher Wheeldon’s “Alice in Wonderland” in 2018.
We currently enjoy developing under Nicholas Le Riche’s directorship and value his efforts to further the creative potential of the Royal Swedish Ballet. He desires to revitalize our ballet school and training so it can continue to produce outstanding dancers. My husband and I hope to inspire audiences and young dancers by proudly carrying on the Swedish ballet tradition.
What does the picture of you, your husband and your unborn child mean to you?
Jonatan and I had a discussion about whether we really wanted to post this picture or not as it is very revealing. Besides being naked, it shows us quite openly. However, we see it as a way of sharing this precious moment of our lives with the rest of the world. We feel blessed to experience the miracle of life.
The growing baby boy moves constantly and is eager to make his entrance on the stage of life. I cannot help but to live life in the present moment when surrounded by the constant feelings and emotions that a pregnancy brings.
I imagine that I will continue on the path of here and now once our son is in my arms. The photo that we published represents the dawning of a new era for us in our private and professional lives. I look forward to my first step back on stage as a mother in the near future.
