Dancers are known for their gracefulness and poise, for the great stamina and strength. A study of the human form wouldn’t be complete without visiting the a dance studio. There’s a level of dedication and perseverance in great dancers that sparks an inner connection between the physical and the mental–a culmination of beings that only great photographers can capture.
In this collection of portraits, photographer Alexander Yakovlev does just that. A mixture of styles, these portraits explore all the wonders of dance–precision, power, and elegance. Take a look for yourself in the curation of images below. You can head over to Yakovlev’s website, Facebook page, and Instagram to see more of his work.
