If there's one thing all dancers can agree on, it's the indescribable thrill of that pre-performance feeling. You know the one I'm talking about: a sudden rush of pure adrenaline, a stomach full of butterflies, and an overwhelming sense of calm, all mixed together. That feeling is ever-present in "Nocturnes," a beautiful series of images shot by photographer Luc Kordas.

Kordas followed around NYC-based troupe, FJK Dance, during rehearsals and performances. The resulting shots are brimming with all the dance feels, from last-minute rosin applications, to those private, in-the-wings moments right before taking the stage. Below, we've selected a bunch of our favorites—check them out, and catch the entire portfolio here!
