“Born to Dance” is a celebration of what it means to be young and full of possibility, featuring gorgeous photographs of well-known dancers as well as stars in the making, including Steamboat’s own Soleil Nelson, who is was captured by Jordan Matter doing a flying inverted split in the library stacks.
Matter is known to millions for his “10 Minute Photo Challenge” YouTube videos and his books “Dancers Among Us” and “Dancers After Dark.” Now, in one dazzling photograph after another, he portrays dancers — ages 2 to 18 — in ordinary and extraordinary pursuits. Paired with empowering words from the dancers themselves, the photographs convey each child's declaration that they were born to dance.
This community talk is free. Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Off the Beaten Path Bookstore. Visit SteamboatLibrary.org/events for more information.
