Calling all NYC dancers: Dance/NYC, Buglisi Dance Theatre and The September Project are collaborating on a new work to commemorate the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

When it comes to dance photography, I have a serious soft spot.  Dane Shitagi’s Ballerina Project, Lois Greenfield’s work, I love it all. And so, I was delighted when a friend showed me what baseball player-turned-actor-turned-photographer Jordan Matter has been working on: Dancers Among Us.  It’s been around since 2009, and is a labor of love between Matter, professional dancers from all over and New York City’s magnificent cityscape.

With a history of hiring dancers from their specifically tracked schools (JKO and SAB), other aspiring ballerinas may be kept out of the loop.
