I love photographing dance performances because it’s a change of energy, a different dynamic.. Normally in my studio I’m the director and creator, but when I’m shooting a show I have the reverse opportunity to capture someone else’s vision.. for me mostly it’s just a nice change, it’s not really a challenge actually but more just a change of pace.. I also usually get to see in person what my clients are up to and I love to go out and support when I have the chance
There’s something about spring – it is one of the best times of year to see dance in NYC, and there are so many performances happening in the coming weeks. NYCB and ABT have wonderful seasons planned. Here are a few others that I’m looking forward to. Check them out!
April 6 – 9
Dance Theatre of Harlem
DTH returns to the mainstage at City Center April 6 – 9. See “power on pointe” and experience the beauty and mastery of Dance Theatre of Harlem. I love photographing DTH dancers and I am looking forward to their season at City Center.

Cinderella at Florence Gould Hall
I’m taking my girls to see this one-day performance of Cinderella that includes an interactive lecture demonstration for kids, guided by Diana Byer, NYTB Artistic Director.
If you have small kids like I do (about 3/4 year or older) this is a perfect ballet company experience for you and a performance you do not want to miss. NYTB is doing great things for our children!
