Dance. My first love.
As a choreographer, teacher and performer my connection with dance has spanned the last 25 years. Dance performance photography is extremely difficult for your average photographer. That's why a dancer as a photographer is a bonus. Not only will you get beautiful images, their won't be cut off feet, blurry action or photos that you say, "oooohhhh, it was close to the right timing". I can anticipate movement. And if I'm able to watch the show before hand, it will produce even more great photos.
