Photography enables us to freeze dancers into iconic shapes, that dramatically embody their beauty, grace, and movement! What if you could also make visible their explosive power? In this workshop we will make that possible - by capturing dancers, first covered with flour, as they leap into the air (and the flour explodes off them!)
