Photographs showcase youth, energy, movement
By DeAllous Smith

Don’t stop believing — in the power of art, dance and youth! The new exhibit in the Airport Atrium, “Believe in Me: Dancing From the Inside Out,” features 15 photographs that capture the determination and excitement of teen dancers from Moving in the Spirit, an Atlanta-based dance organization.

Each photo centers on the talent and conveys messages of strength, courage and hope.

“For me, Moving in the Spirit epitomizes the connection between the arts and the greater good,” artist J.D. Scott said. “For over 10 years, I’ve photographed many performances and practice sessions at Moving in the Spirit. I believe my artistry is most alive when I create photographs that tell the ‘real’ story of people moving in the spirit.”

“Art lovers of all ages will enjoy the beauty of these images,” said Katherine Dirga, Hartsfield-Jackson’s Art Program manager. “Looking at these portraits, you can really see the dreams and energy alive within each child.”

Now celebrating its 25th year, Moving in the Spirit uses the art of dance to educate, inspire and unite young people ages 3 to 18 and helps them become compassionate leaders.

“Believe in Me: Dancing From the Inside Out” will be displayed in the Atrium until September 28.

“Believe in Me: Dancing From the Inside Out” features high-energy photos of dancers such as Tenesia Benson.
