The Urban Ballerina

Ballerina Project — Nine years ago, young photographer Dane Shitagi walked up New York City’s Broadway towards the highly patronized and well known STEPS dance studios in search of a ballet dancer who could help him begin his project: to capture images of ballerinas in urban environments. Those images first started appearing on Blogspot, but have since migrated to Facebook. [via]

I thought this was going to be about last night's episode of Fringe.

I found the one with the empty fridge really disturbing, given the ballet context.

Regarding the term "ballerina," an ex-girlfriend, who had danced professionally since childhood, shared a stage with Baryshnikov, and was in the core de ballet of American Ballet Theater, would correct anyone who called her a ballerina. That term, she said, was reserved for principal soloists.
