Body virtuosity

I've always been fascinated with how the human body can move. Having the God-given gift of two left feet, I'm fascinated how others can stretch, pop, and lock, creating artistry through the simplest movements or expressing physical virtuosity with complex movements and patterns, some moves that take years to prepare and perfect.
In my own study of dance, light is an important factor in highlighting certain aspects of movement: the musculature, body position and even facial expression.

Dance also expresses a culture. Sometimes it's an age-old tradition rooted in French ballrooms, or a new-age funk found in the basement of your local pub. Either way, dance as culture is a means of collecting people together for a moment of common expression and art — the movements on the dance floor, or the stage, lending towards a higher, vernacular power.
