Dance remains first love for Brook
IANS [ Fri, Nov 23, 2012 ]
- London, Nov 24 (IANS) British model Kelly Brook, who has finished her sell-out run as a dancer with the acclaimed French cabaret group Crazy Horse, says her love for dance has remained with her throughout her career, even though she ventured into different things.
She has spent over 15 years in the industry, and she admits people still wonder why exactly she is famous, reports dailymail.co.uk.
"People ask, 'What are you? You are not really this, not really that'," she said. But post her stint in Crazy Horse, she is hoping that they have a better idea.
"I am hoping that this has reminded everyone why I am still around," added the model, who turned 33 Friday.
"Because this, more than anything else, is what I love. It's taken me back to my roots, it's why I got into showbiz in the first place and it's why I put up with what I put up with... what I have to," she said.
Before Brook entered showbiz, she trained primarily as a dancer at the Italia Conti Theatre School in London for three years. This was before she started modelling and her career took off in directions she didn't imagine.
"In your career, you get swept away and taken in all directions. Sometimes you have to be quite business-minded and political. I have done a bit of everything; I've been on television, been in Hollywood and made a film, but at the back of my mind it has always been dance," she said.
