Jordan Matter | Born to Dance: Celebrating the Wonder of Childhood

ONLINE ORDERS FOR THIS EVENT HAVE CLOSED. PLEASE BUY YOUR BOOK ONSITE AT THE MARMALADE LIBRARY TONIGHT!

Meet photographer Jordan Matter, who will discuss and sign his photography book, Born to Dace: Celebrating the Wonder of Childhood.

In one dazzling photograph after another, Jordan Matter portrays dancers—ages 2 through 18—in ordinary and extraordinary pursuits, from hanging with friends to taking selfies, from leaping for joy to feeling left out. The subjects in Born to Dance include TV and internet stars like Chloé Lukasiak, Kalani Hilliker, Nia Sioux, and Kendall Vertes, as well as boys and girls from around the neighborhood. What they all share is the skill to elevate their hopes and dreams with beauty, humor, grace, and surprise. Paired with empowering words from the dancers themselves, the photographs convey each child’s declaration that they were born to dance.

The event will include a dance performance by the Judge Memorial Dance Company.
