The group was made up of friends who mostly knew each other closely and have danced together before. I was a member of this dance crew, as well.
It felt like another family. It wasn’t strictly business. We didn’t only see each other in the dance studio. Since a good portion of the group were seniors, the group quickly fell apart after graduation. For some, the reality of a full-time job took over and left no time for dancing. Because of my knee injury, it was the last time I ever performed, as well. Others, however, pushed forward and continued dancing. Andre was one of them.
He needed photos to market himself as a dancer so I had him hold dance poses. I used the same studio for J. Tran’s photo shoot earlier this year (I will be blogging about this soon).
As expected, Andre’s session was a lot of fun. A mixtape blaring in the background mixed by none other than Andre himself + sweet dance moves reminded me how much I loved intimate portrait sessions.
I hope these photos help take him one step closer to his dream.
