It’s a celebration of pure joy: two dancers in a fountain, rainbow over their heads. A fully dressed dancer, holding a baguette, skipping down an allée of trees. A male and female dancer kissing while suspended from a wrought-iron gate in front of a vine-covered villa. Adapted from the New York Times bestseller, Dancers Among Us features professional dancers in the midst of the everyday, in “breathtaking photographs that free your imagination” (Diane Sawyer, ABC World News). There’s no photo manipulation here, no trampolines, no gimmicks, no tricks. Just the mystery of the body in motion, the surprise of seeing what seems impossible, the art of a moment of life captured.
