For my final photojournalism project I had the opportunity of shooting with three girls that have been dancing pretty much all their lives. The project originally was set to depict dance students rehearsing, stretching and doing some barre work during class. The ballet professors NEVER got back to me nor gave me permission to access the class, so I had to look for advanced dancers that would be willing to participate on my own. Much to my surprise, a bunch of girls were interested and got to work with three of them: Amanda, Tanner and Bella. They have all been dancing since they were super young (aka 2 years old) which means their skill level is pretty advanced. They all currently take ballet courses in college, but only Tanner is a dance major and is planning on making a career out of it.
These were my favorite shots:
