City Ballerina is an ongoing series of photographs created by photographer: Joanna Whitehead. An inscription of poetry, beauty, form, body and soul cultivated in the dance art form captured in and around the beauty of Reno and Reno's historical's and are outside of their natural environment.
Every aspect of City Ballerina is created with the use of style, beauty and the joy of the dance. The majority of these ballerinas are currently or have danced for companies such as Nevada School of Dance, Nevada Dance Academy, The Smith Center for The Performing Arts - dancing for Nevada Ballet Theater, along with multiple performances for the Nutcracker. These dancers have danced the entirety of their years. The crafts of dance and photography are truly upheld on both ends of the creation of City Ballerina.
