North Carolina: Back in Time

November 2016: Academy of Dance in Reidsville, N.C., holds a special place in my heart because it’s where our daughter Kate took her first dance lessons at the age of 2. Seventeen years later, Ben and I returned so he could teach two master classes and talk to students about being a performer. Earlier in the day, I took headshots of the kids as well as this addition to the “Art & Dance” series. Later, while Ben was teaching, I spoke to parents about the work it takes to help an aspiring performer navigate the professional world.
