Layla Goodwin is dancing her way across America

by Lisa DeAngelis

Eight-year-old Layla Goodwin, of Langhorne, has been chosen to represent Pennsylvania in a nationwide project called “Dance Across the USA.”  The project is the brainchild of photographer Jonathan Givens who decided to both commemorate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service and to promote dance as a wonderful career and lifestyle by driving to all 48 contiguous states, and flying to Alaska and Hawaii to photograph a dancer at a national park, national historic location, or state park.

These images will be cataloged on his website, and will be eventually combined into a book which will be sold to benefit the national parks and the National Endowment for the Arts.

“We believe,” says Jonathan, “that by photographing talented dancers in these nationally significant locations, we will both increase the interest in dance, as well as expose people to the accessibility and majesty of our country.”
