The NYC Dance Project is an initiative designed to showcase the magical world of dance and dancers. It was founded by fashion/beauty photographer Ken Browar and dancer/photographer Deborah Ory, and the beautiful pictures you can see here are taken from a book called The Art of Movement that's soon to be released.

Inspiration for the project came when Ken and Deborah were decorating their daughter's room. They wanted to fill it with pictures of contemporary dance stars (their daughter's an aspiring ballerina), but unable to find many they decided to photograph those dancers themselves. They got in touch with a principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre and asked if they could photograph him. He agreed, word quickly spread, and soon Ken and Deborah had several requests for collaboration from other members of the NYC dance community. Take a look at some of our favorite pictures below. The Art of Movement is released on October 2 and you can pre-order it here.

Such beauty is almost too much for this mere mortal to bear. The exquisite gown and her soaring height are spectacular.
