When you’re at a competitive ballroom dance event, all your thoughts and energy, most likely, go into the final performance. In that state of mind, we rarely notice the beauty of what’s happening behind the curtain of a lit dance floor. Gladly, there are photographers who still spend their efforts trying to catch you at a right moment and in the right move, shoot behind the scenes. And you, as a dancer who is probably looking at this from the comfort of you desktop or a hand-held device, shall definitely appreciate the effort of these photographers, and the beauty of the world you were in just a few moments ago, and haven’t really noticed.
Great competition starts with a long wait
MakeUp – Check!
Hair – Check!
A good stretch!
A quick run through the choreographies
And then the nerves kick in…
We all would deal with them differently
Get ourselves psyched…
…Or, won’t even bother, since…
Deep down, we know that we can’t really control the outcome.
