Hannah, Dancer

Hannah is a dance student at Temple. She’s been dancing since she was 3, when her folks put her in dance classes to give her an outlet for her energy. She says that her first language is her body language. There is a new, guest instructor leading her modern dance class right now, which is exciting to her, especially since they are focusing a lot of their attention on improvisation, which she was gracious enough to share with us during the shoot. I chose the song: a movement from Steve Reich’s “Electric Counterpoint,” as recorded by Johnny Greenwood. As soon as the first note hit her ear, she took off; her body took over and immersed itself in conversation with the music.
