A Very Cary Christmas

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The other half of my extraordinary Saturday was spent photographing rehearsals at the Cary Ballet Conservatory.   They are working towards the performance of  “A Very Cary Christmas” on December 18th.

Seeing the development of dancers, from small to tall is extraordinary.  I do not understand what drives someone to pay the price of gaining competence in ballet.  The result is, like music,  powerful and fulfilling and wonderful.

Window light floods the studios of the Cary Ballet Conservatory.  Electric light floods the stage of the African Children’s Choir.  Grace and motion, energy and voice.  It was an extraordinary Saturday.
