Degrees of Rotation is a graduate student choreography show at The University of Oklahoma SCHOOL OF DANCE. The show is not performed on stage, but in a large studio, offering a unique and intimate performance experience for both the audience and the dancers. I was asked to photograph the show LAST YEAR and was thrilled to get to do it again this year! Beyond the challenge to catch the technical moments, what I also love about this show is being close enough to see every emotion on a dancer’s face. The proximity allows you to hear every breath, see every bead of sweat, and I think it brings the whole room together as part of the show because there are no other distractions – this is happening right now; in front of you!


These are just a few of my favorite shots and I’d love to know what you think by commenting below!
