there's something mesmerizing about dance
using your body as an instrument
allowing music to flow through

lindsey croop: 
a ballerina at the dance theater of harlem
she grew up in texas,
her career brought her to new york
and she dreams of someday living in paris
. . .
we met in harlem during the early morning hours
her poised and calm demeanor set the tone of the shoot

"why dance?
it doesn't feel like a question of why
dance is not something I feel I chose
it's my natural reaction - when I hear music playing I have to dance
i'm just lucky enough that I could make a career of it"
