Good Morning Loves!
In honor of our countdown to C.O.R.E Dance Academy on March 6, 2012, we wanted to feature an extremely inspirational project done by professional ballet dancer, Aesha Ash.
These images are from her empowering project entitled Swan Dreams, which was inspired by her mission to introduce the magic of ballet to both underprivileged and minority communities. She is on a mission of introducing and sharing this precious art form to everyone.
The project uses photography to proclaim the message that beautiful art and boundless talent can be found in all environments. Aesha uses city neighborhoods from the New York community where she was raised as the backdrop for her artistic project, which expresses her desire to see this art form reborn in the urban neighborhoods.
Her goal is to encourage young women of color to NEVER STOP DREAMING!
A portion of the proceeds from each image sold goes towards organizations already at work spreading the beauty and benefits of ballet, as well as providing an opportunity to donate images to schools, youth organizations and community centers.
Ballet is for everyone to experience and share.
