I spent part of the weekend photographing the talented dancers at the Fergus Elora Academy of Dance. The dance school is owned and run by the amazing and dedicated Erica Finlayson who is shown here helping a young ballerina strike a picture perfect pose. My muscles are still recovering from the 8 hours of climbing ladders, lying on the floor and jumping around like a ninja trying to get the perfect angles for all the various dances and poses but I still think I had the easier job!
I have a love of dance photography. There is something about the grace and beauty in the movement of a dancer that inspires me. I will get to photograph these dancers in action as well during the year end performance which is always an incredible show!
