I always wanted to shoot a dancer In their natural element. Just had to find someone to do so. Then I remember Chaleak owned her own dance academy In Daytona called Royal Pointe Dance Academy. I figured her studio would be the perfect spot for this shoot. For some of the shots, I was going for a dramatic/shadowy look( My favorite kind of photos!) and the others a little bright with tons of expression.
Seeing these poses makes me truly appreicate the art of dance. I could never pull off some of these poses. My feet would probably break In half! Tons of strength, patience and endurance to become a dancer.
