Every year something magical happens right after Christmas. Its a dance event called Lindy Focus and it is pretty amazing. Some of the best dancers from all over join in on the fun and there are 5 days of pretty much NON STOP DANCING. :) This was my third year attending and my first as one of the “official photographers.” I worked alongside with the quite talented Bobby Bonsey. I think we make a pretty good team and I really enjoyed working with him. :)
Ok, now on to the photo goodies. OH and also, if there is a link above the photo thats the link to the dance that was being photographed, so go check it out. Dave Braverman did an awesome job with the videos. :)
Lets start with Mike Roberts and Laura Glaess. They are two of the most attractive dancers Ive ever seen in my life. When they dance they show so much emotion. I could watch them all day. Want to watch them? Go here
How could I have picked favorites without Sharon Davis being in them. Here she is getting her dance on.
Here is one of my favorites from the entire event. I love that Terrace. He was one of the first dancers I was ever ‘in awe over.’ I first saw him 4 years ago at a dance event and he was awesome. Since then we’ve become friends and im far from nervous to dance with him. Its a pretty good feeling. Im sure thats why this is one of my favorites because were friends and I got some sweet flare and everyone is so happy. It makes for a fantastic shot.. Plus I mean.. not everyone can dance blindfolded.
Its rare someone captures a good photo of me dancing with my own camera. So, thanks to whoever picked my camera up.
Andrew and Karen always have awesome routines!
The guy there on the left is the other photographer :)
The Charleston competition is worth the watch!
I love everyones faces.
and last but not least,I love how Neil finally decides to grab my camera to take photos of me taking my equipment down.. instead of helping out. Ahhh men.
Anyway, arent you sad you werent there? It was seriously an awesome time. I seemed to have a difficult time this year. There were a TON of folks Id never met and typically I try and get photos of everyone. But this year.. there were just too many people to get everyone. Im glad I had Bobby there because that way we could ‘share the load.’ So, if youre not in any of the photographs I apologize. Come and see me at ATLX8. ;)
Jaya, Michael and Sosh know how to throw a party. Thank you all so much for having me along as a photographer this year, I loved doing it. :) You three are thebomb.com
