A few weeks back my friend and great photography Alan Bailward (Bailward Photography) and I were talking about how we would like to try shooting a Ballerina.  Well long story short after some inquiries a mutual friend hooked us up with the Fraser Valley Academy of Dance in Mission.  We blocked off a Sunday afternoon to set up at their studio and they arranged a bevy of Dancers to strut their stuff for us. As this project grew in scope Al and I invited a third shooter , Monte Arnold ( Fly in the Eye Photographic Arts), to join us.  It was a great experience and these young dancers were so impressive.  At their request we shot many images over and over till they we satisfied that their form was perfect.  Such work ethic in young people is rare in my experience and they forced us to expect more from our shots.  Time very well spent and we hope to return to FVAD again in the near future.
