Practice makes perfect

I stopped by the Chandler Fred Astaire studio one Saturday morning for another reason, but as is often the case, I happened to have my camera with me. My friend Maren, who is one of my favorite dance partners, was practicing the patterns of one of the Latin dances, probably the mambo or the samba, I don't know which. I asked if I could take her picture, and she said sure. She paid no attention to me as I clicked away, which was exactly what I wanted; and I ended up taking 21 shots, of which 8 were deleted on the spot. I liked this one best out of the 13 that remained, because her concentration is expressed on her face. She is a very good dancer, and this, which is part of her usual Saturday-morning routine, helps explain the reason.
