Australian photographer Lisa Tomasetti has worked as a visual artist and film stills photographer for the past 23 years. Her eye for cinematic drama comes through in her dance photography, a collection of images in which she is able to capture the beautiful elegance of ballet dancers set against the more rough, gritty urban city streets of Paris, Tokyo, and New York.
Some of the most gorgeous long exposures we've seen lately were taken just yesterday. These painting-like photos feature ballet dancers at the “Emerging Dancer 2013″ competition final in London. Photographer Leon Neal of AFP/Getty Images took these creative shots which show a handful of dancers gracefully moving across the stage.
Choreographer Jonah Bokaer and Snarkitecture combine talents to create Why Patterns, a dance inspired from the musical composition by Morton Feldman of the same name. It starts off with a black stage and a singular ping-pong ball. Soon it transforms into a… Continue
Daniel “Cloud” Campos is more than just a dancer. The Filipino’s dance repertoire covers so many styles, it has brought him to the stage alongside Madonna, among many others. His creative mind is what brings dance to life in his video clips and what makes him, in my humble opinion, one of the most creative young people out there. His latest production, The Music Box, is a shining example of what he's capable of.…

I've seen this video float around the web for some time now but only today did I truly come to appreciate it. This one lone fella just starts shaking it like no one's business and then suddenly others started to join him. One, two, three..and then a massive crowd followed.
Here's what Seth Godin had to say about it.
My favorite part happens just before the first minute mark. That’s when guy #3 joins the group. Before him, it was just a crazy…Continue

Pilobolus began as an experiment among three guys and one puzzled professor in a Dartmouth dance class back in 1970.
