There's something mesmerizing about dance -
using your body as an instrument
allowing music to flow through

A ballerina at the Dance Theater of Harlem.
She grew up in Texas,
her career brought her to New York,
and she dreams of someday living in Paris

We met in Harlem during the early morning hours.
Her poised and calm demeanor set the tone of the shoot.

"Why dance?
It doesn't feel like a question of why.
Dance is not something I feel I chose,
it's my natural reaction - when I hear music playing I have to dance.
i'm just lucky enough that I could make a career of it"
