The cover of the September 2022 issue of Dance Magazine. Emily Johnson is seated, eyes closed and chine tips up as she brings splayed hands towards her face, dark hair loose around her shoulders. One knee is tucked up beneath her, foot planted, while the other is kicked out in front, dangling off a ledge. Around her, white and blue swirls and pink circles, pieces of an artwork we're too close to see fully.
