“Dance is a mysterious, dreamy and divine language which expresses the energy in all things with sensual lines of beauty, power and grace. To provide a sense of that wondrous energy in my still and moving pictures is my goal.”
“I love to work on dance oriented projects from ballet to street, whether site specific, in studio, or live as performance or performance art. Dance videos: yes! Dance Magazine had this to say: “’. . . he vividly catches dance in all its precious, fleeting essence.’”
Paul is a dance lover and has dabbled as a dancer himself with some hip hop, jazz and ballet classes!
