Recently had the great pleasure of viewing and capturing shots of Sasha (9), my oldest granddaughter, during her ballet class. I watched and photographed through two windows, one in the door to the studio and the other a screened viewing window with numerous reflections. I was deeply moved by Sasha’s gracefulness, presence, poise and concentration. She loves classical ballet and it shows through her every stance and move. To say the least, she doesn’t get this talent from me. Good possibility it was passed down from her great aunt Nonna, who danced professionally for years.
