What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Dancers + Dogs


Pratt & Kreidich Photography

I saw this on a good friend’s FB page and just about lost my mind. The brainchild of dance photographers Kelly Pratt Kreidich and Ian Kreidich, Dancers & Dogs is an adorable photography series featuring two of my favorite things. The purpose of the project (besides being unbearably cute) is to make ballet seem less stuffy and more accessible and relatable. The duo wanted to create images that were “clean and elegant pictures, that are sweet, light-hearted and funny,” and I’d say they achieved their goals beautifully! The goal is 100 dancers and 100 dogs. That’s a lot! They’ve started with their native Saint Louis Ballet, but they’re hoping to expand into other cities as well. So if you know any dance companies with a thing for dogs, let them know!

You can follow Dancers & Dogs on the project website and on Facebook, and you can check out all of Pratt & Kreidich’s work on their website.

  5. Too cute! I loved the video showing how they created some of the shots. Those must have been fun photoshoots. I loved it when the dogs did their own thing like little divas and I also noted that one of the dancers even fell gracefully when she was pulled by the dog leash.

  6. I love how well they get them to work together! My labrador would make off with the ballet slipper, too.
