I love this photo because the energy of the background matches the energy of the dancer.
Kirsten Thorne is, quite simply, a powerhouse of a dancer. She gets as much elevation in her jumps as the male dancers in the company and thrives on quick, yet expansive, movements. She is one of those dancers that you just sort of "let loose" on stage. There were other photos in this Belmont Park shoot that were quite stunning (a rollercoaster, a wave machine, a plunge), but the added subtitling of the pic by the CHAOS ride in the background, just makes me smile. It also looks a bit as if Kirsten is a constellation on the edge of a spiral galaxy.
