Often my students or young phtographer aske me if I would allow them to watch me work during a portrait session in my studio. Most often I answer in the negative. I wrote about it here.
This is why when I get an ivitation to watch dancers dance in pre-performances I make it a point to attend. What seems to be a pattern that is increasing, to my dismay, is that I cannot get Rebecca to attend them. Since we went to a PBO concert on Friday she turned me down for Garay's dance session today. It's the logic of a 10-year-old, "If I go to this I will not go to that." It breaks my heart to think that she may be losing her interest in dance as she increasingly wants to play computer games (the noises during these games make my cringe). But I cannot force the young girl. But this comes with an unforseen surprise. Lauren has said yes and she and I will be watching the dance session at the Scotiabank Dance Centre this afternoon.
There is another reason why I am looking forward to it. At one time I would have been embarrased to admit that I am going to a dance session to watch a particular dancer. But it was Artemis Gordon, the Dance Director of Arts Umbrella who once told me that I have nothing to be ashamed of. "Dance consists of beautifully shaped and fit men and women moving gracefully."
Lauren and I will be there today and I will be watching the deliciously shaped and powerful dancer Desirée Dunbar. Even though se will not be wearing a white raincoat I will not be disappointed.
