Ballerina Project - Beauty and Art Through Your Eyes

"Ballerina Project"

Beauty & Art Through Your Eyes

by Dane Shitagi

 The Ballerina Project grew from the idea of New York City as a magnet for creativity; each photograph is a collaborative work of dance, fashion design and photography played out against the city's landscape.

 This album will showcase the images that best represent the journey of the Ballerina Project over the last 13+ years.

 Ballerina Project - About

Like a dream becoming reality the Ballerina Project is an ongoing series of photographs created by photographer: Dane Shitagi. Constructed over the span of 14 years the Ballerina Project is not your typical “dance photography” but an etching of a ballerinas heart and emotions.

Every aspect of the Ballerina Project is carefully crafted and cultivated.  The majority of ballerinas who have posed for the project are currently or have danced for companies such as American Ballet Theater, Boston Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Dresden Semperopera Ballet, Tulsa Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, Miami City Ballet, Suzanne Farrell Ballet, Ballet West, New York City Ballet, San Francisco Ballet and Pacific Northwest Ballet. Other ballerinas are in schools such as School of American Ballet and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School. The crafts of dance and photography are truly upheld on both ends of the creation of the Ballerina Project.

Much of the project has been photographed on traditional film and cameras. Only as of the late Spring 2012 the project has begun to incorporate digital photography for a portion of the latest images.

Currently the Ballerina Project has one of the largest network of followers for ballet related pages on Facebook in the world. In the press the project has been written about in the Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, NBC Today Show, Esquire and countless blogs. The project has also been featured in advertisements for both Fujifilm and Sony Erricson.
