I dream of dancing

It was such an honor to have the opportunity to photograph the very talented Mari Sugawa at the beautiful Waterford Gardens.  When I was a little girl I always dreamt of being a ballerina, this is the closest I have ever gotten.

A little background... Mari was born in Washington, D.C., and grew up in Japan where she received her training. She joined the Matsuyama Ballet Company in 1994 and performed as a soloist in such classics as Swan Lake, Nutcracker, Coppelia, Cinderella, and Giselle. She also performed Ballet Ballet Ballet, a contemporary work by Matsuyama Company choreographer Tetsutaro Shimizu. Ms. Sugawa has performed with Ballet Austin, New York Theatre Ballet and Eglevsky Ballet. Her Juliet, Princess Aurora and Black Swan have met with high critical praise.  Mari  is currently a principal dancer with New Jersey Ballet Company.
