Romantic Ballet Dance Portraits│Marion Iowa Dance Photography

"I can't stop the feeling
So just dance, dance, dance"

Dancing is an art in itself...the way people can gracefully move their arms and legs together to create beauty is amazing. When I move my arms and legs...they don't coordinate BUT create a clumsy mess of a person that will probably end up slipping and becoming a hurdle on the dance floor. <- This is my daily life people!

Angel has been in ballet for years, so when it came time to photograph her graceful movements...I was wracking my brain on how I was going to direct this session. While, it worked itself out...the laughter that ensued from me trying to leap in the air or demonstrate an "arabesque," could have one first prize for entertainment committee...thankfully there was no one else in the vicinity that could see what was happening!
