It’s International Dance Day, so thought I’d head into the weekend with just a collection of pretty dance pix I’ve shot over the years, including a few I rarely put out there. Some, I believe, have never seen the page or the screen, and have always been in files. It started with the photo above, of a young dancer at Lincoln Center, during a workout. This one I have shown before, as it was the starting point of a career long fascination.
