In July, Dorrance Dance came to Jacob’s Pillow for a two week run of their world premiere ETM: The Initial Approach. In addition to their two weeks of performances, they also taught two Master Classes on body percussion and singing with improvisation.
Tap dance is one of the most difficult dance forms to photograph but it is also one of the most fun. I got to photograph this show twice, which was such a treat. I first shot the show during dress rehearsal, where I was able to move all over and get plenty of different angles. Then I got the photograph it from the light booth. This gave me more of a birds eye view perspective for some great wide shots.
