Ingrid Silva, the Ballerina Inspiring Brazil.

Born and raised in Brazil, Ingrid Silva began dancing at Dançando Para Não Dançar, a favela based programme that offered training to children who could not afford dance classes. Ingrid was 8 years old when she began training in ballet and although she had always dreamed of becoming a doctor, by age 13 she had decided to dedicate herself to dance.
