‘Interconnected Art’ dance photos for Monday motivation

By Catherine May

Few things are as strikingly emotive as the experience of dance. The empirical nature of this visual art applies not only to those who perform, but to those who can spectate and feel as well. The movements of dancers shed light on the feats of the human body, while eliciting ribbons of freedom, grace, sorrow, and interconnectivity. I was recently able to trace these impacts through two University of Alabama students, Blair Ely and Faith Russell. This photo essay is aimed at displaying the complex contortion found upon a surface analysis of the art, while diving deeper into the emotive process and its ability to relate humans to one another.
