Music [Photo-Hunt]

Can you imagine dance without music, or life without music? It is a "sound through time", it gives us rhythm. Music, like dance, is an essential form of expression in every culture---both are basic parts of traditional and contemporary life. Lisa Macuja, a Prima Ballerina, also dances to modern dance music. Can you feel the beat?

Photos were taken in August at the Forum in the Mall of Asia. More about Lisa Macuja here.

It really does look like ballet for the masses -- something that's not at all easy to achieve!

She is such a beautiful ballerina and so graceful!

I attended a few ballet lessns when I was in elementary school. I couldn't stand the pain when having to stand on my toes. :P

She's really lovely. I do like her too. I wish i can dance, my mother in law is also a ballerina on her own right. She wishes that Peachy would be too someday.
