DANCERS OF MIDWEST PERFORMING ARTS
"Field Of Dreams."
As one gets older it seems you learn to appreciate the little things. You enjoy the ride, trust the process, breathe deeper. You look out the window. And I was, thankfully. Driving through the endless fields of Wisconsin I was overtaken with the beauty of this site. It was so bright and quiet and still. I had never seen anything like it. It felt like I was dreaming. Naturally I had to come back with a pack of dancers. And just like that we have the first [Insert Dance Here]. This series of captured stills and live performances places dance in unexpected spaces. The very first one features Midwest Performing Arts in a hayfield.
Studio owner Meghan McDermott is a Giordano Dance Chicago legend. a classic vision, blonde bombshell of a dancer best Known for her fierce 6 pack abs. she was and still is such an inspiration to me. Midwest Performing Arts just celebrated its 5 year anniversary. and it comes to no surprise that the studio is just as Chic as she is. it feels like home and i am so Happy to be a part of the MPA family. it was an honor to shoot with them and i am stoked to have them on board as the first dancers participating in our new program - DAP connected. Get connected to them and many others as we champion cyber unity through dance.
