Taking pictures at dances is a real challenge because of the light levels. Dance is all about motion, and good lighting is a must for capturing the motion of dance. Dances do not have good lighting. River Falls Lodge has christmas tree style lights alighting the room. Very pretty, but very low illumination. Still, I find taking pictures to be rewarding because of the moments of human interaction that are captured. Below is one that I've titled "Shadow Dancers - Shoulders". I really really like the lines in this picture as the dancers' bodies pace themselves. A person may have to take a hundred pictures to get one like this, but the effort is well worth it!

The picture is part of a larger flickr picture set from a 7/18/09 contradance at River Falls Lodge.
