Fashion - Reach with Everything You've Got

Dance is all about reaching. As a dancer, you can find the art that lies within you and make it stretch so that it seems to cover the world. The more you dance, the further you can reach. One good way to learn how to grow as a dancer is to recognize and attend to each part of yourself that is capable of reaching. Reach with each part in turn, and then reach with everything you've got. Repeat often. What arises can't help but be beautiful.

Heather reaches with her hands.

She is wearing a blue Piroutte Camisole Leotard from Danskin's New York City Ballet collection. This tank leotard features an adjustable pinch back ($44.00, style 6397).

Heather reaches with her feet.

She is wearing a red Women's Scoop Neck Long-Sleeve Leotard from Danskin ($17.00, style 9190), and black pants from Danskin's New York City Ballet collection. These pants have adjustable drawstring side seams and an embroidered logo ($52.00, style 921).

Heather reaches with her eyes.

Heather is looking at the world through a bouquet of red Charlotte roses from Flowers of the World.

Extend yourself with body and mind; with all of your senses, not just the sight, touch and smell represented here. The world that looks back at you will be a little brighter.

Flowers of the World sells a variety of beautiful flower arrangements for individuals and large special events. They can be reached at www.flowersoftheworld.com, by calling 1-800-770-3125 or at one of their several stores. The photos in this photo essay were shot at Flowers of the World's store at 150 West 55th Street in New York City (212-582-1850). Special thanks to Moshe, who let us use his store for this shoot, and Joseph, who was unfailingly helpful as we moved the furniture around and kept asking for the names of the flowers. The flowers at Flowers of the World not only look beautiful, they have a beautiful aroma as well.
