  • Acclaimed Photographer Jordan Matter Photographs NA Dancers in New York

    Inspired by photographer Jordan Matter’s project The Dancers Among Us, dance teacher Yvette Luxenberg frees her students from the confines of the dance studio each fall and offers them New York City as their stage to dance – all while being captured on camera by the photography students of digital arts teacher James Worrall. The trip is always a perfect opportunity for the dancers and photographers to explore their creative curiosity, to discover new movements and perspectives. And, who better to inspire them to reach new heights than nationally acclaimed photographer Jordan Matter? Jordan appeared at the site to shoot NA dancers in action and provide advice and direction to NA student photographers. (Photographs by Jordan Matter)
