Midsummer Night Rehearsal






With this gallery, I have tried to show a typical evening rehearsal session. It begins after more than an hour of work at the Barre followed by 30 minutes of vigorous work on the floor. There are several pieces to rehearse with different groups of dancers...So, when dancers are not rehearsing, they are watching, working on their shoes or costumes, doing homework, and in some cases sleeping. Yes, sleeping. This gallery was shot over 2 rehearsal evenings. I used my Canon 5D set at ISO 800 and 1000 and my 70-200 f2.8L IS.
