Straight to the Pointe

Posted 04.16.15 by Miranda

You’ve all heard the expression, “a picture speaks a thousand words”…which is why I’ll keep this short and sweet. The Ballerina Project is a photo series that has been constructed over the past 15 years. The photos are absolutely stunning, as they capture the most alluring ballerinas from famous dance companies around the globe. The project has received a ton of press over the past several years and has an international social media following that’s pushing 1m followers on IG alone. I’ve recently noticed the @ballerinaproject_ posting from nowhere else, but right here in #DowntownTempe! There are no words – just check out the images and you’ll get the pointe.
