Learning to ‘Surrender’ with dance warriors

2. The works of Being Human/Surrender

I got the amazing opportunity to photograph the Rhythmic Arts Academy last year, a dance school located in Amanzimtoti, KZN, South Africa.

This shoot stirred something in me and I had a good inkling that I would be visiting these dancers again. I had a strong sense that these women are warriors in ballet shoes and that ‘dance’ is where their souls erupt into joy and where they get to be in the absolute moment and their absolute spectacular self.

On this shoot, I witnessed how very powerful dance is in the way of self acceptance, self love and healing. I am thrilled to be meeting with these dancers again and hope to learn what it is to ‘Surrender’ to what is and what was, before we can forward.
