Pas de Deux- Dance well represents my life because I've been a part of the minority as far as male ballet dancers go. The complexity of this pose refers to the complexity and struggle implied being a straight male dancer in a predominantly female world. The artistry and beauty of the body lines in the photo remind me of how gratifying it is to preform and how accomplished I feel after entertaining in front of hundreds during recitals. Entertaining others is what I love to do.
"Baby, why don't you go put your best dress on? Those high heeled shoes you love to lose As soon as the tunes come on On second thought, just the way you are Is already drivin' me crazy So baby, why don't we just dance?" - Josh Turner
