At twelve years old, Brigitte Bardot entered the ballet school. That’s when she found something to be passionate about.
Two hours of classes at the bench was very tiring, but she dreamed of become a ballerina.
Soon she left school and began taking lessons from a Russian dancer Boris Knyazev, but eventually drop out.
Being tall limited her career as a ballet dancer.
Quite early in her life, she was noticed by a professional photographer and was offered modelling contracts.
By 1950, she was featured on most Elle magazine covers and attained the image of a cover-girl.
