Local photographer Nathan Caulford will be displaying his photos at the Imagine Ballet Theatre studios as part of Ogden’s First Friday Art Stroll on August 5th . Doors will open at 6:00 pm for guests to view the gallery, and closes at 9:00 pm.

Caulford began shooting and working in the darkroom as a hobby in 1999. He started using digital in 2003 when he accepted a job with Digital Specialties, a sporting event photography company. By 2004, he had been contracted to photograph National Championship events for U.S. Figure Skating, as well as the bi-annual State Games of America for the U.S. Olympic Committee. In 2005, he was hired to photograph the Luge World Championships, and began working with film talent on-set and in his Salt Lake City studio.


Caulford has photographed Archery World Cup, Youth Archery World Cup, WAC Basketball Championships, Winter Dew Tour, “Among the Maya” (a personal project in Guatemala), two commissions for Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind, and he regularly shoots for Ogden Business Development Division, and the Salt Lake City-based architectural firm, Axis Architects.


Caulford has been awarded five awards by the Society of Professional Journalists, including three 1st place awards (feature photography, sports essay, and sports feature). He is also the recipient of the American Democracy Award given by the New York Times.


Caulford’s favorite genres are portraiture and nature. His major influences include David Leeson and Greg Gorman.


2011 Summer Intensive Performance: August 12th

Our 2011 Summer Intensive Performance is winding to a close, and with only two more weeks of classes the dancers are working hard as they finish the five-week dance program. A final performance showing their progress and performance pieces will be held August 12th at the Peery’s Egyptian Theater at 7:00 pm. Tickets are available through the Peery’s Egyptian Theater box office or online at


IBT’s Summer Dance Intensive spans five weeks and six hours a day during the week. The dancers focus on ballet technique for two hours each day, while the afternoons are dedicated to variations, pointe, and other styles of dance. These other styles include modern, contemporary ballet, jazz, and choreography. The dancers have also had the opportunity to prepare their own pieces of choreography throughout the summer in preparation for the Summer Dance Sampler performance.


Joining the dancers on stage will be Gary Flannery, a former star of Broadway and Bob Fosse’s principal dancer for many years. Mr. Flannery will be performing the legendary “Mr. Bojangles” piece, which was originally choreographed by Bob Fosse for him.


Don’t miss this exciting evening of dance! The dancers, guest instructors, and IBT faculty look forward to sharing their summer’s work with you!

I see dance being used as communication between body and soul, to express what is to deep to find for words.

I Dance

by Abby Hardin

Music soars, twists and turns

dives beneath my skin

Wills my muscles to move

without control, music guides me

one movement gliding into the next time flows by

nothing else matters

my heart beats to the rythem

everything in sync

Music, movement, and art combine

I dance.
