On Pointe With The Ballerina Project

We recently stumbled upon The Ballerina Projectwhile reading an article in Huff-Po, and were instantly captivated by the concept.  Real dancers take a pause from the stages and studios, and literally take their toes  to the streets of NYC.

The blog and Face Book pages offer a stunning look into the unexpected beauty and grace that lies beneath the hustle and grime of everyday life around New York. We love this breathtaking shot of  the dancer above! The image flawlessly captures her as she seamlessly becomes a part of this graffiti scarred building. Her lines and form  turn the whole scene into a work of art.

We hope this brainchild of photographer  Dane Shitagi continues, and even expands to other cities around the globe. To check out more of these urban collaborations of grace and grit, click here now.
