Ballet dancers shine on theatre stages but spend most of their working lives in dance studios. This is exactly why Rob Becker chose these often bare rooms, far from the stage, theatre lights, costumes, make-up and roles, in which to photograph the dancers. In photographs of poses and movements, as well as close-up portraits of the dancers, Becker frames their personalities and great athletic strength.
Most of the subjects are dancers from all over the world. The book also includes photos of old dancers, ballet masters and choreographers.
