Fashion Modeling: The Untold Secret of a Dancer | Ema Steindl

Fashion Modeling: The Untold Secret of a Dancer | Ema Steindl

How does modelling help dancers perform better? And does one necessarily have to be 'beautiful' to pursue such a career? The fashion industry has progressed massively from the days of archetypal body types and facial features, where the one size fits all model loomed by and large. Nowadays, it is about compatibility and authenticity. Find the right agency or project, and a model is potentially born.

Ema Steindl is a student at the Academy for Performing Arts in Bratislava pursing her Bachelor's degree, but is also a professional model currently tied to three different international agencies. While she did not qualify fully as a model early on, she was discovered serendipitously on a bus and given the opportunity to realize her unique gifts in both fashion and dance.

Concluding the month of Dance Fashion, this episode explores life as both a dancer and fashion model, offering insights as to what these two industries entail when interweaved. Interested in joining a casting session soon? Consider picking up a move or two and surprise your panel!
