Dance Photographers and Videographers

On a whim, I started a list of folks who also post great dance photos on Flickr.
And here's a few fan groups...
And if you prefer videos...
I know there's a lot more of y'all out there. Heck, I probably follow you already. It's just that there are so many people, I keep adding more each time I update this post.

If I forgot you or your group, or I forgot someone that you follow, I promise that it isn't because I don't love you anymore. (Whether you don't love me anymore, well, I really ought to cut back on the Jack Daniels before I write the editorials.)

Please add URLs to the comments, and I'll add them to this list.

Don't Make Me Call The Dance Police, Take 7

Every week or so, I look back through the photos of Second Life dance performance that I’ve posted on Flickr.

Sometimes, I smile. Sometimes, I wince.
And then there’s the times... well... you know...

I like to call this portion of our trip: Don’t Make Me Call The Dance Police.

Gotta watch out for zombie dancers sneaking into the audience this time of year. (We are the refreshment stand)

This is how I look on the TSA scanner at the airport.

It's always important to have medical staff available during team dances, because civilians don't properly warm up before their acts.

FUN FACT: Particle candy has no sugar or calories.

If I had this as a bedside alarm clock, I'd be terrified of trying to hit the snooze bar.

Darn it. Cheap blue screens. Okay, I'll edit out the strings in post.

They'll let anybody drive for Uber these days.

After the Mr. Ed show went off the air, he became a backup dancer for Rompers.

Someone else going through the TSA scanners.

A&M Mocap - October 14 2017
It takes a while for some acts to load, but she was 23 when they started this performance.

George was a pirate, but... forget George. What's her name?

Making Strides - Treasure The Chests - October 14 2017
Okay, fine. I can take a hint.

Making Strides - Treasure The Chests - October 14 2017
My cousin R. Damnit Mariner is a dentist, and he's always sad when he has to left an extracted tooth go

... I've got nothing. This was just cool, man.

The Rompers - October 14 2017
When I swear too much, Di and Nara get angry... you wouldn't like them when they're angry. Well... um... on second thought, they're kinda hot when they're angry.

The Rompers - October 14 2017
Hey, didn't you read the sign? Don't pet the deer!

No, this is not a shot from their skybox security camera. (I've got that in another folder)

Elysium Cabaret - October 13 2017
I've already got my three wishes, thank you.

Noir Neverland - October 12 2017
That's not blood. They just painted the roof and it's leaking. Honest.
