You know the nightmare where you suddenly realize you're naked in public?


For these dancers, that scenario was a dream come true: a chance to show off their skills and the muscles developed from years of hard work, as well as to inspire others to be more daring in their own lives.

Photographer Jordan Matter spent two years photographing 300 dancers for his latest book, "Dancers After Dark."

All of the dancers in the photo series appear nude, striking graceful poses against the twinkling lights of cities around the world.
