“I love ballet because you can see how beautiful the body is.”
I wish I was a great dancer.
I’ve already admitted and reminded everyone here that I am in fact not a great dancer. I appreciate dance and can do a few salsa steps or groove to a hip-hop song, but it’s certainly not something I could do as a profession. I just lack the coordination and natural grace of great dancers. But I certainly appreciate and marvel at the way great dancers evoke such expression and beauty with their bodies.
I saw these pictures by Omar Z. Robles and love the beauty of the poses held by the dancers with the grittiness of the background in NYC. It certainly also makes me appreciate the beauty of the human body as well. You can also clearly see the strength and agility of each of these dancers here. When I see them, I not only appreciate the beautiful possibilities of their positions, but also their strength and healthiness as individuals. I may not be as toned as a dancer, but I am reminded that I can still work on my own body and find beauty in its strength.
Have a lovely week!
