It's been about 10 years since Sarah Hyland last danced, but the Modern Family star busted out her pointe shoes for a ballet-themed photo shoot with Beauty Coach!
In the accompanying interview, the 25-year-old actress — who was recently cast is ABC's Dirty Dancing remake — opened up about her thoughts on inner beauty and her dancing past.

She defined inner beauty as:
"To me, inner beauty means being a strong, kind, giving soul. Be compassionate, but don't let people take advantage of you. Be forgiving, but don't forget. Give back to the world, but don't let anyone take too much of you."
When asked how she practices inner beauty, Miz Hyland shared:
"I try and surround myself with people who I think practice a way of life that is similar to mine or that I would like to emulate. Surrounding yourself with positive people makes all the difference."
And as a final tip for all the young girls who may feel pressured to look a certain way on the outside, the NYC native offered:
"Just be healthy and happy. Every woman is different… every person is! But, the most important person in your life is you. So stay healthy, be active, get happy! Do that and I promise all the facetuned, photoshopped pictures in the world won't get you down."
