Oh yesterday I slogged through torrential rains for a photo shoot. At first I doubted the sanity of all that. But when I arrived at my destination, I was a very, very happy photographer. You see, I was invited to the Children's Dance Foundation in Homewood. What a wonderful place this is. They not only offer dance classes at this location, but in their words:
"Children's Dance Foundation's Community Partnership Program provides dance classes to more than 1,500 children each week at more than 25 social service agencies, child development centers and schools in Birmingham. CDF’s vision is grounded by a commitment to empower all children through dance. CDF embraces this important work with the disenfranchised and underserved, providing classes to organizations that serve these students regardless of their ability to pay."
I had the pleasure of photographing two groups of 3-4 year olds. What could be more fun? I'll have to admit I need to hone my "dancing photography" skills. They were a very exuberant bunch. I hope I captured that. Maybe I'll be invited back to visit some of the other sites in Birmingham. Today.........tiny dancers. :)
