Last month we had the privilege of photographing the “Move The Butte” Dance show held at the Crested Butte Center for the Arts. This is our third year of photographing it and it is always amazing to watch these artists as they connect to themselves, to each other, and to the world around them through their dance. It makes us realize that Art does pull the community together because Art makes you feel differently. That’s what artists do all the time, shifting and changing the way you see life around you, the way you respond within your community.
To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful.. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking ~Agnes De Mille
And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music. ~Friedrich Nietzsche
