Je Danse was an awesome project I had the pleasure of doing after discovering this awesome talent. Je Danse means ‘I dance’ in French which was beautifully named by my model in this picture, Aleksandra. A lot of planning and coordination went into this process and then drawing it created a lot of excitement and challenges. I was very impressed to learn a lot about pole dancing and what goes into the dance. A lot of strength and flexibility is only some of the things you must excel in to participate in this. So I only hope that by me creating a stance of which can look graceful and contemporary, but also showing the back muscle activation, that can tell a story more than just what you see.
