Sit. Stay. Plié. celebrates the Alabama Ballet studio's dancers and rescue dogs in a photographic collection featuring the beauty and athleticism of the dancers with the tail wagging giddiness and curiosity of animals rescued from the streets and shelters across Alabama. The images capture the relationship and connection between the athletes of the Alabama ballet, who have dedicated their life to their art form and the canine companions of the company.
These images capture the grit and grace of the dancers and many of their four legged friends. On any given day, a different ballet dog visits the dancers and are seen running laps down the hallway and peering into rehearsal ready to play and give unconditional love.
This collection captures the joy, intimacy, and unconditional love of these special moments and relationships.
The featured dogs are all animal rescue pets--a testament to the importance of the work of these groups and the perfect idea for an animal rescue book and a gift that supports their critical work.
We spent a year creating the 100 beautiful pages that comprise the book cover to cover. We also added some unique facts about the ballet that we learned along the way as we continued our journey to create this book. See below a few of my favorite images that appear in the book.
