Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival recently announced four dance companies performing at the festival next summer 2015: Martha Graham Dance Company, Michelle Dorrance / Dorrance Dance, Jessica Lang Dance and New York Theatre Ballet.

I have photographed three of these dance companies at the festival in past years, and I’m looking forward to photographing more dance next summer.

Photographing Dorrance Dance

One week last summer, my main objective photographing Michelle Dorrance / Dorrance Dance was to make a photo that encapsulated the feeling of the choreography, the feeling of the movement, a signature moment, something reflective of the signature style of the piece for press to use in the reviews of the show.

The following week, I had the opportunity to photograph her performance again, and that week, I captured more of the musicians more, more individual shots of as many dancers alone as possible.
