Once upon a time, I choreographed a quartet during the fall that I hoped to continue on with during spring semester. Unfortunately, one of my dancers wasn’t going to be able to join us and I found out during intermission as it happened. I had noticed this beautiful dancer with jet black hair and impeccable technique and on a whim asked her to be in the continuation of my piece for spring during that same intermission. Her name was Karina and she happily agreed.
In time we became close friends and I asked her join me in the studio first for the Studio 60 Project and then a year later for the New Dance Project. Within a week of working with Chelsea I had three shoots in the same style under my belt and a new project with new constraints to work with. Working with Karina was easy and fluid, as the limits of technique were only limited by our respective vocabularies.
Sometimes it can be hard to write at length about what happens in a shoot where things go smoothly and results blow your mind but to say the brevity of this post is indicative of the photos would be a farce. Karina is an amazing and beautiful dancer and there’s really little else to say.
