George Ancona’s bio

Boys Dancing
From School Gym to Theater Stage

author/photographer: George Ancona

Can you emote like an angry pirate from Treasure Island ó and even act out a fake swordfight? When four boys join their schools' dance teams, thatís just one of the numbers being rehearsed for a performance directed by the National Dance Institute of New Mexico, inspired by favorite books such as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Where the Wild Things Are, The Thousand and One Nights, and Oh, the Places Youíll Go! Trailing the four enthusiastic dancers is photographer George Ancona, whose copious images capture the infectious spirit of the boys as they learn to dance, act, sing, leap, pretend-fight, change costumes, work hard, and above all, have fun, together with vivacious boys and girls from many other schools.

Follow four energetic boys as they train for and take the stage in a community dance performance celebrating classic kidsí books.
