World of Dances #8

This post is the latest in the World of Dances series, which profiles ballet and dance photography in iconic, architectonically unique, culturally emblematic, rapidly vanishing landmarks or simply unexpected locations, that Kike captures about during his travels. This post is the latest in the Drones and Small Unmanned Aerial Systems Special Series, which profiles interesting information, research and thoughts on using drones, UAVs and remotely piloted vehicles for journalism and photography.

“My new discovery of aerial photography using drones was a perfect match for my land and underwater work on classic ballet,” said Kike Calvo. “For the last six years, I have been photographing classic ballet dancers around the world in locations that are environmentally unique or historically relevant such as architectonical gems that are vanishing. I have called this project: “World of Dances”. Alison Stroming, professional ballerina with Dance Theatre of Harlem. Photo © KIKE CALVO
