Back Garden Cabaret - Found Here
My mother grew up dancing, going into New York City for ballet lessons but later giving up dance for career and family. Her feet now a testament to years spent dancing on point. Wanting to pass on her love of dance to her daughters, she signed us up for tap/baton lessons then later ballet. I, on the other hand, hated leaving a game of kickball or hide and go seek to put on my leotard and ballet shoes for dance class. After years of dance I finally talked my mother into letting me quit for my new found love - gymnastics. Looking back, those early years must have made a pretty profound impression because I love dancing and watching the creative elegance of a good dancer or performance. Most improbable of all, at one point it was my secret desire to be a Broadway dancer - go figure! So, now my newest love - The Ballet Project A collaborative work of dance, fashion design and photography that showcases the graceful lines of dancers played out against the landscape of New York City. See the gorgeous work here and a few of my select favorites below.
Violeta - Tribeca
Elina - East River
I guess my lesson in this, which I would love to pass on to my daughter is...Listen to your mother, she really does know best!
