Meet the BalletMet professionals who shared their talents for our shoot...
Mallonee, 25, has danced professionally with BalletMet for nine years. Originally from California, she now lives in Marion Village with her husband (a theater manager), dog and two cats. Modeling, she said, is an interesting way to tweak what they do daily. "And it's also fun to play dress up, of course!" Her favorite look in this spread? She loved the camel cape. And the jumpsuit. And the black gown. But she thinks she's voting jumpsuit. "That's a really hard question," she said. "They were all so good!"Gabriel Gaffney Smith
A New York native, Smith, 26, is dancing his fourth season with BalletMet. His musical passions go beyond dance: he plays the piano and saxophone, and recently released his first album, Gafsmit, on iTunes. He dreams of writing movie scores and performing on Broadway (yes, he sings!). As for modeling, he finds it fun. He said he'll send this spread to his parents-along with this message: "Thank you for always supporting me in what I actually want to do in my life. For always saying you can do anything you put your mind to."
