Music and dance is like a river which stretches through time, perceived at an instant, yet each instant is different, never the same, and always connected to what came before and will come after.

An interesting aspect of dance photography is the inherent implication of time which I think is impossible in music. You can see the flow captured in an instant.

I suspect (not being a dancer), that skillful lyrical or adagio dancers can support the thread of time weaving through their movement in perfectly fluid transitions from one instant to the next.
