Alaina was born and raised in the mid-west with her parents, and older brother. Her mother was a dancer in her younger years but never made it as a professional, which is probably why she always told Alaina she would never make it in the ballet world, this just fueled Alaina`s need to be perfect……. Her father was a successful Doctor in their hometown, he just paid the bills and went to work-the family rare saw him.
All Alaina ever wanted was to be a ballerina, her family was upper middle class so she had the opportunity to dance and study at a premier dance school..
Her parents sent her to a boarding school that offered a wonderful education as well as a dance program- Walnut Hill school for the arts in Natick, Massachusetts. Her mother didn`t want to spend anything on her dance education but her father (feeling guilty for not being around during her childhood) made the decision to go ahead and send her away to the school…. all expenses paid!
She was a natural at ballet-her teachers, other students, and though she didn`t know it someone else saw it as well. She studied hard-perfecting every move-and perfecting her self. She hoped she would be noticed, and she was. Elsa Linden was informed of this wonderful new dancer who was almost flawless, she would step in and watch classes to see it for herself, Elsa was so impressed with Alaina that she wrote a ballet especially for her, Alaina was excited for this opportunity, never in the schools history was a student given their own ballet to perform!!
Elsa contacted Viktor in Portland, Oregon who owned the Oregon Ballet Theater and told him all about this prospect and how she believed she would go far with him leading her. She sent him a video of Alaina dancing in her ballet, he immediately was entranced by her…He wanted her-and he always got he wanted.
She had the same drive for perfection as he did……
At Alaina`s graduation she was met with Elsa, who introduced her to Viktor- Alaina thanked Elsa for all the opportunities she gave her, she didn`t know how else to thank her for everything……She sat with Viktor who presented her with a principal contract for the Oregon Ballet Theater… She was speechless-something like this NEVER happened to a dancer this early-and without working with them first… Oregon was so far away but how could she give up this position… Who were these amazing people and WHY did they choose her.. ★ ° :. . • ○ ° ★ . . . ° . ● . ° ☾ °☆ ¸. ● . ★ ★ ° ☾ ☆ ¸. ¸ ★ :. . • ○ ★ ° :. . • ○ ° ★ . . . ° . ● . ° ☾ °☆ ¸. ● . ★ ★ ° ☾ ☆ ¸. ¸ ★ :. . • ○ ★ . . .
Alaina went to Portland Oregon with her older brother Nicholas, her father insisted that he go with her and watch over her, physically, mentally, and financially-Nicholas finished medical school and was looking to start his own practice-which he would later do in Oregon.
Once they arrived in Portland, they got an apartment, Alaina started at the OBT immediately-she wasn`t used to Viktor`s harsh way of teaching but she started to feel that he was brilliant!!! He was so amazing-so perfect!!
“Here let me get you some water, Alaina” -Viktor.
After a few months of dancing Viktor invited Alaina to his private residence were they could “talk” about her future within the OBT. This is where her life would change…. He embraced her, she stayed with him for a short while, while learning what she needed to know about her new “life”.
Now she continues to work at being perfect, constantly dancing, perfecting every move… Still worrying if not only her dancing, but that SHE is perfect.
