Hidden Visions

I've been a dancer, performer, and competitor for 40 years (retired). Although I danced Ballroom and not Ballet, I always wished I had had the opportunity to dance Ballet. This series isn't about the glamour and artistry. It reflects on the commitment, pain and injury, disappointment, competitiveness, criticism of a dancer's/ artist's path in the achievement of their goal- sometimes never found at all. It is the hidden aspect of art and artistry.
The Italian masks are things of beauty but are designed to hide the wearer's identity, emotions, and intent. Both the masks and dance hide the truth of what it takes to bring fantasy to life.
