Dance the night away

Rehearsing the dance number

Katarzyna, a friend of mine, who just happens to be a dance choreographer telephoned me to come out and see a dance rehearsal. It was based on a collaborative effort between her and some dancers she met a few weeks ago.

As a photographer it's kind of tricky to shoot a dance number the first time you see it. You don't know where or how the dancers will move. You have to rely on experience and luck to get the "good" shots. The challenge increases as the number of dancers increase as you then have to figure out which one to concentrate on at specific times.

Tonight there were six dancers. All moving at the same time. It was a bit nutty to say the least. They did the number a second time and I managed to get a few good shots before the night was over.

Kasia and I went for sushi afterward.
