Sacrifice 01. Holly Jean Dorger








Sacrifice is a project by RAVN. We want to bring focus on the hard work there is behind all big achievements. You normally only see the glamour and prestige on the stage and as a spectator, you do not think of what the stars have sacrificed to become the best at what they do.

Prima Ballerina Holly Jean Dorger is the first to star in the Sacrifice series, where RAVN puts the focus on unique talents and achievements made by women all over the world...

Quotes by Holly Jean Dorger

  • Dance makes me feel free 
  • The is not a higher rush or a higher feeling that when you well on stage 
  • You have to constantly remain focused on your goals and dreams and what it takes to reach them 
  • As an artist you take your deepest scars and you allow your self to be valuable and you display them for the public 
  • The ultimate ideal is for me to become a permanent memory in someones mind 
  • The goal is not to brake about being a principal danser, the goal is to actually be a principal danser - to dance. 
  • Holly Jean Dorger 
  • Prima Ballerina with Royal Danish Ballet
