Pas de Deux- Dance well represents my life because I've been a part of the minority as far as male ballet dancers go. The complexity of this pose refers to the complexity and struggle implied being a straight male dancer in a predominantly female world. The artistry and beauty of the body lines in the photo remind me of how gratifying it is to preform and how accomplished I feel after entertaining in front of hundreds during recitals. Entertaining others is what I love to do.
