COLORADO SPRINGS -

Jonathan Givens lived many places growing up, but Colorado Springs is where he considers home. 

Dozens of people welcomed the Doherty High School graduate on Sunday to Barnes & Noble in Briargate, to hear his experience on a project taking him around the entire country. 

'Dance Across The USA,' became an idea for Givens around Christmas of 2015. 

He admits he had a couple glasses of wine when we stumbled upon a project of traveling the entire United States in one road trip. 

As a photographer and performer, Givens says he was told to 'shoot what he knows,' and dance is what he knows.

Which is why with the road trip he discovered, he decided to photograph dancers in national parks and different landmarks. 

Some of the places he stopped included Garden of the Gods, Glacier National Park, and Bryce Canyon National Park. 

With a big van, Givens dubbed 'The Mighty Buford,' he traveled to all of these places photographing different dancers from many backgrounds. 

The book features dancers from Colorado Springs, and every dancer featured in the book is representing their respective home state.
