This is from our ballet photo shoot last month. My ballerina colleague struck this moving pose so quickly I could barely frame it. However, this turned out to be one of my favorite shots. Her curved lines in space are so beautiful! She is our tallest dancer and long limbs are definitely a plus in ballet.

You may notice that most of my ballerina friends are Japanese. Not sure why, but there are certainly a lot of Japanese ballet dancers in this part of the Bay Area to Silicon Valley! Perhaps the attention to artistry inherent in Japanese culture draws them to this art in motion.
Wishing all you Aesthetes sunnier skies wherever you are ...
