14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

My goal with this photo was to portray the sincerity and passion that dancers contain. The ballerina in this picture has been dancing for 8 years, and I wanted to display her attachment and love for dance. The motion of the skirt symbolizes the freedom and fluidity of movement that dancers feel when they perform.
