We’re adding this to our collection of “leap and fly” photos that we see as so emblematic of the willingness to “take a leap”, risk, try new things. We love this one because the dancer is so game, and looks like an ordinary person doing what she loves, maybe not brilliantly, but wonderful all the same.
