Amanda, of Odd Violet Creative Photography, started taking photos of dance students as a way to encourage and uplift them. She was surprised that these beautiful, talented, athletic young women often didn't realise how incredible they were. So Urban Ballerina kicked off as a way to empower these dancers to think of themselves a little differently and see their worth and beauty afresh.
We're excited to announce that Odd Violet has partnered with bella to bring you stunning snaps of daring dancers on the regular!
Today’s movement makers are from Queensland. The theme of this shoot was Streetkids and photos were taken at a local skate park. Amanda said there were a few skaters zipping around at the time, who were very sweet and respectful, if not using a bit of colourful language.
