    Any adult who has ever been a dancer or dreamed of being a dancer in Australia knows how iconic the Sydney Dance Company venue is. To style a ballerina party without your usual cliche theming would have been a challenge. I think Vesna of My Little Jedi has exceeded all expectations. These super cute printables so beautifully marry the vintage feel Ballerina party, that I am sure every little girl would dream of. Well Done!
