Andrej Uspenski - Dancers: Behind the Scenes at the Royal Ballet

Andrej Uspenski, dancer with the Royal Ballet, has produced a book of his photography. He provides a back stage view of the company and talks about the daily life of a professional dancer:

“I know the movements, I know what they are about to do. I know where to take pictures and when to hold back and not take pictures. Like on-stage. Say, if I’m in the wings I’m realising and I can’t sense the atmosphere.”
