The Big Picture is a blog run by a developer of the Boston Globe’s website, Alan Taylor. Published three times a week, the best photos pertaining to a certain subject are gathered and presented on the site (in the site’s words: “The Big Picture is intended to highlight high-quality, amazing imagery – with a focus on current events, lesser-known stories and, well, just about anything that comes across the wire that looks really interesting.”) A couple entries ago, the subject was Dance around the World. This subject intrigued me, and I found the photos to be so uplifting as the viewer can travel the world and see different, beautiful ways people and culture expresses itself through dance. I just thought I’d post the link–the photos are definitely worth looking at!
* Also the dancer on the left of #7 is Antonio. He danced in the same pre-professional company, Coca, in St. Louis, that I did growing up! He’s an amazing, talented dancer.
