The City Ballet of Los Angeles is a non profit founded by Robyn Gardenhire. I have had the pleasure of documenting CBLA since early 2015 when I first moved to LA. The school is dedicated to teaching low income boys and girls the art of ballet as it is one of the most expensive forms of dance to participate in.
Robyn has dedicated her life to teaching and preserving the dance by creating this program and encouraging inner city youth to go far and beyond. These images represent Robyn's commitment and the commitment of her students. Please take a look at these images and indulge in the emotional nostalgia I've been able to capture because of Robyn's hard work and passion for the art of ballet.
