Prima Ballerina


I have no idea how a dancer can simply stand and appear weightless and graceful. Unless it’s the astonishing work ethic and passion to create what seems impossibly beautiful. Maybe it’s DNA.

2012 – A Brand New Dance

I searched my galleries for a photograph that expressed how I regard this New Year of 2012.  I found it.

One more example of why I love to photograph dance at dress rehearsals.

Photographed at the 18 June performance of “Anastasia”, a production of the Ballet and Jazz  Companies of the Cary Ballet Conservatory.   Yet another reason I’m taking so long to edit the performance photographs.

Young Anastasia


This young lady is one of two who danced the role of the young “Anastasia”, a production of the Ballet and Jazz  Companies of the Cary Ballet Conservatory.   I’m a few days into editing a digital mountain of rehearsal and performance photographs.  When I reach one like this, my productivity falls off, dramatically.



The Cary Ballet Conservatory  recital of  “Anastasia” is being performed today, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Hanes Theater, Chapel Hill High School, 1709 High School Rd. Chapel Hill, NC.  It’s a wonderful production of a great story.
