Dance is an art where light and spirit move in space. To photograph that movement, to stop it and show it in its stillness, can bring a completely new light to the art. Choreography is a collage of movement and music and costume and lighting, all of it dynamic, all of it changing. Yet in a photograph, you can still see the spirit of the creative focus that can make dance so inspiring. For that to be possible, though, you have to be able to find, in a burst of momentary time, something of the inspiration that an artist intended, and accomplished.
