What About Modern Jazz Dancers? I love the movement and the energy. Dancing is so artistic an activity that it is perfect for a portrait.
When I was a teenager, I had these two friends, gorgeous girls, that were dancing apprentices. I was totally overwhelmed by their marvelous “talent”, but completely shy and weak to make any sort of move.
Time passed and those teenage goddesses are gone, just a piece of memory lost in my mind. On the other hand, becoming an artist gave me the privilege to appreciate the pictorial aspects of dancing.
Modern Jazz Dancers are wonderful subjects.
“Jazz dancing, and its steps and style, originated from the dancing of African Americans that were brought to America as slaves. Originally, the term jazz dance encompassed any dance done to jazz music, including both tap dance and jitterbug.”
