Summary "Former American Ballet Theatre dancer Rosalie O'Connor takes us behind the scenes of one of America's best-loved dance companies. With this collection of black-and-white photographs taken between 1996 and 2002, O'Connor shares with us a more intimate view of dance - from rigorous daily routines to breath-taking moments in performance." "Mikhail Baryshnikov invited O'Connor to join ABT in 1987. When she suffered a serious foot injury in 1997, she stayed actively involved with the company through photography and discovered that all she knew as a dancer could inform her eye as a dance photographer." "With unlimited access to her colleagues and an unrestricted view from the wings, O'Connor captures the emotions of the dancers and choreographers at their most unguarded - intense, vulnerable, exhausted, and exhilarated. Getting Closer is a compilation of her favorite images."--BOOK JACKET
