Beautiful Ballerinas Gracefully Dance Across Urban Streets

Photographer Dane Shitagi created the Ballerina Project as an ongoing exploration of the elegant beauty of ballerinas. The project initially began in Honolulu, Hawaii, but has since taken to the city streets of New York, Boston, and Toronto. Each composition elegantly combines the smooth lines and curves of a ballerina’s body, strikingly contrasted with the geometric shapes of busy urban landscapes.

Shitagi has developed this ongoing project across 12 years, and he says it’s not your typical dance photography project, but rather, “an etching of ballerinas’ hearts and emotions.” His beautifully precise subjects are placed softly against the harsh urban surroundings, and each creative juxtaposition is more expressive than the next.
