      “I have no desire to prove anything by dancing. I have never used it as an outlet or a means of expressing myself. I just dance. I just put my feet in the air and move them around.”
      Fred Astaire

      So I have this small obsession. Well… obsession is a strong word. I have an interest. Yes, let’s say interest, it sounds so much less…um… obsessive.

      Now that we’ve cleared that up…. I have this interest in the arts. If you know anything about me you’ll know that I am that person who stands and stares at the piece of art on the wall at the fine art museum for way too long and makes everyone else around me crazy. You’ll be aware that classical music is more distracting to me than music with words because I can’t help but “see” the music in my head. George Balanchine said “See the music, hear the dance.” I think I get that, I obsessively get that.

      I’m that person who cries at the ballet every single time. Don’t judge.

      Knowing all that I just shared with you, I am now going to tell you that I have had a couple of dance projects scheduled for this year. The first of which I want to share today. Now, I would like to pretend that I said that in a very cool-like voice. Very calm and collected. But quite honestly, if you really know me at all, you’ll know that it was more of a high pitched squeaky, overly interested voice. 😉

      Because I am a former dancer and taught dance for a big portion of my life, I adore working with dancers and combining dance and photography to create something hopefully beautiful and a little different.  I believe dancers are the type of people that will always be able to give you more than you’d see at first glance. They’re usually passionate and creative people.  And they’ll usually push themselves to go beyond what even they think they can do.

      Having a background in dance is such a help in moments like this because I can usually see what I want to capture (and hopefully know the name of the dance move to ask the dancer to try for me). When I have an opportunity to try and take that vision and combine it with the vision of the dancer herself, I can’t even. Basically, the most fun ever.

      My beautiful dancer here is Dominique. She is a dance teacher at South Florida Arts and Dance Company and she adores her kids almost as much as she adores dancing. She has a laugh that will completely light up a room and as you can see in the images, she obviously flies in her spare time. My biggest issue in this session is trying to keep Dominique from pushing herself too hard in the south Florida heat. She had sweat dripping off of her as I was shoving water at her saying, “need a break, need a break??” Her response (and one that will make dancers everywhere grin) “nah, just one more”.

      Dominique, thank you for trusting me to create these images with you and thanks for being able to fly. Everyone else, enjoy.

      PS – You all may feel free to invite me to the ballet with you anyday, just sayin.
