Should I change my job? Should I move? Where do I go next? Is this the right time? What am I doing with my life? Change is inevitable, but seldom easy. In an ongoing series called Movers and Shakers, we’ll be talking to dancers who’ve made changes in their lives and careers to find out what they’ve learnt and what impact it’s had on them. Here, we talk to Patricia Zhou, Prix de Lausanne winner and one of the first…

Cloud & Victory X Angelica Generosa & Lindsay Thomas

This summer, C&V approached Lindsay Thomas, inhouse photographer at Pacific Northwest Ballet, to collaborate with us on a series of photos. I had admired Lindsay’s work for a while – she takes some seriously dreamy photos and has a sense of humour that we at C&V can vibe with (is ‘vibe’ still an acceptable expression? Was it ever?). In fact, we had the exact same idea to make pun-filled, ballet-flavoured Valentine’s day cards. It goes without saying that there are so…

C&V Photo Sessions: Miko Fogarty

In August this year I had the chance to catch up with my friend, Birmingham Ballet artist Miko Fogarty. She told me she would be in Taiwan and would be game for a shoot and lunch, so a furious few days were spent mulling over a concept and cobbling together moodboards, styling looks and conversing with a photographer – the always reliable Puzzleman Leung, who was happily free on the day – and the next thing I knew, I was…

C&V Photo Sessions: Cloud & Victory x the Dancers of Vaganova Ballet Academy

A gaggle of girls cluster around me in the dimly-lit photo studio, waiting for my instructions. Nastya and Sasha have to leave early. “So how about you sit and I shoot you wearing your pointe shoes,” I say. The two long-limbed young women in question pull out a fresh pair of satin pink pointe shoes apiece and sit against the white studio backdrop, shifting slightly as I reposition them. Their friends disappear down the corridor to a dressing room. One…
