In the world of dance photography, Gene Schiavone's photographs are acclaimed for their exceptional ability to capture the art of ballet. He exudes the friendly, calm confidence of someone who knows how good he is but doesn't need to prove anything.
Every once in a while I attend a performance that is so remarkable that I forget about ticket sales, fundraising, budget cutting or any other aspect of my job. A recent performance of Le Corsaire by American Ballet Theatre was such a moment.
