Dance Rehearsal

Well, I promised you earlier that I would post some photos of here they are.
I'm afraid that they are not great photos, because the lighting was bad, the dancers were fast, and to be honest, I'm not very good at taking action photography. It is hard. Oh well. It was my first time photographing ballet. :P
The performance I saw was a dress rehearsal. There were lots of comments and interruptions by the dance instructors, and it was fun to listen to :D

There were dancers sitting in the wings....people kept telling them to move! 

Little girls in bright costumes.

As I said, it was a dress rehearsal, and there were mistakes and laughing. Very fun to photograph! :D

Her dress reminds me of candy corn for some odd reason!

Cute little girl... the dancers worked so hard, and it was super hot in the auditorium. One of the lead dancers actually fainted during the rehearsal! 

The rehearsal was lots of fun to watch, and there were some good dancers in it!

And the end!

Taking photos for this was work. Fun work, but I actually felt exhausted after I finished taking photos. I guess it was late too :)

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Beautiful! I think you did a great job. Taking pictures in low lighting conditions can be really tricky. Your shots look really great. I love the one of the guy and girl in black and white.

  2. Lovely pictures! I am a dancer and a photographer; I've danced for ten years, since I was five, and I love it. I've never tried photographing it, though.

  3. I have been a dancer for ten years this January. :) Love the photos, and I can understand why it would be hard to photograph.

  4. I love the black and white of the dancing couple! :). great action shots, Lise.

  5. Thank you all so much! I really appreciate your encouragement ;)
