image captionAnsa Gohar: "This is a photo of dancer Jessie Lee (who attends Central School of Ballet in London) in Brick Lane, London. As soon as we saw the angel-wings graffiti in the Brick Lane area, we knew what we wanted to do. It took quite a few attempts, but eventually we managed to get the shot we wanted, portraying her as the angel of dance."

image captionNoah Seelam: "Mohiniattam is a classical dance form of Kerala. It is a beautiful feminine traditional dance form with surging flow of body movements. It is a solo female dance, where musical melody and the rhythmical swaying of the dancer from side to side and the smooth and unbroken flow of the body movement is the striking feature. The Mohiniattam dance focuses mainly on feminine moods and emotions."
