It is something like this that might compel me to actually pay to go see a ballet! :) Picture some kinda "West side story" knife fight, twirling around kinda scene. ...but would probly have to include cool special effects to make me wanna come back and see another one. :D

Well done, Angela! Love the oddness. Photographically excellent also, IMO.

Interesting blend of attire/interests. Great pose, lighting, and clarity. Maybe a lighter background so as not to lose the legs in the darkness?

Lovely poise and authentic outfit. The grace and flexibility is at once transmitted giving a sense of regimentation of both body and spirit. Love the position and the downward gaze. Truly artistic. Bump.
