Dancing and theatre can be a bit of a challenge to photograph. Low light and fast movement makes it even harder to capture the right shot – especially without a flash – which fully was my intention. These images are of four dancers from the Dolores School of Dance in Lower Hutt. While they are amateur dancers only attending classes in the evenings and weekends, they are in essence, professional and competent in their art form. I hope the expression captured in these dancers at their dress rehearsal, highlight their professionalism and dedication to the art of dance.
