Styling Story: A Dancer in Motion

We’re stepping into the dance studio to inspire you to get moving!

The mesmerizing motions of dance, whether ballet or hip hop, are captivating in a way that few other art forms of art can compare to. Flowing from one position to the next with ease and poise while staying synchronized with the beats of the music, the dancers entrance their audience. Photographer Ted Emmons captured the movement and beauty of dancer Alana Arrington in ways that matched the inspiring nature of watching a dance performance live. Mixing street style with the movement of ballet, the team brought to life the beauty that is dance with looks styled by Keenan Evans. Take a look and be inspired….

  1. Once again, Free People’s focus on “dance” is saddening me. I love and support this brand, but you guys have to stop pretending to be capturing real dancers. As a professional dancer in NYC, I am offended by these models that perhaps “dance” from time to time being used as dancers in your ads and photos. And yes of course everyone can dance and should dance, but stop trying to make these girls seem like professionals. At least stop having them point their untrained feet and just let them move freely like your brand name would suggest. It’s unattractive, sad, and really fake.

  2. Sad dancer, don’t be so pretentious harping on their “untrained feet.” excuse me? everyone has a body, therefore everybody is able to explore and expand their unique range of movement.

  3. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your blog. It appears as though some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.
