God given talent…

Well, I haven’t been shy about professing my love for dance. It’s always great to see people doing what they love, and doing it so well. I have had a vision in my head for quite sometime about a piece I wanted to do on a handful of dancers, and yesterday I had that chance. I had the honor of spending some time with 5 ASTONISHINGLY gifted dancers. Now, you may be thinking…ok “astonishing” is a little over exaggerated Desiree…well, I am telling you, it is the perfect word. I was is awe watching these beautiful girls dance around as naturally as you and I breathe in and out. It was almost as if their movements required no thought or preparation at all. There are so many things I love about dance…

*I love the fluidity and movement of dance

*I love that it is perfectly acceptable for an older girl to wear a tutu for any other reason than Halloween

*I love the fact that you can lose yourself in what ever piece you are dancing, and nobody thinks you’re weird or crazy

*I love the distinct creaking sound that only a wooden dance floor or stage can make

*I love the sound of dance heels on a wooden dance floor

* I love the sound of tap shoes on a wooden dance floor

*I love the fact that there are springs under dance floors (I always thought that was kinda cool…I know I know, it takes very little to amuse me)

*I love the look of “broken in” ballet shoes

…well I could probably go on all day, but this post would be far too long. I want to give a HUGE HUGE thank you to my friend Katy, who is also one of most talented dancers I have EVER met. She is the one who made this piece possible. Thank you so much for helping me make this a reality. Thank you to Dance Dynamics, for the use of their awesome studio…check them out! And last but not least, thank you to Jaqilyn, Angela, Alexis, Mackenzie and Lauren, you 5 made these pictures what they are…ASTONISHING!  Here are the shots from the day. I have to say, it was SO hard to choose between all of the stunning  photos there were. So, this will be another looong post. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.


Love love love! Thank you so much for capturing these great shots!!!
