I attended and photographed a Nutcracker rehearsal at Baltimore School for the Arts. It happened at the spur of the moment and so I didn’t have the best possible lenses, but I went with what I had. I realized quite quickly I wouldn’t really be able to capture the lifts and the big jumps with what I had, so I went for the in between moments, the expressions, the looks in the mirror, the innate joy and excitement the dancers exuded as they prepared for the big day only four days away. More to come: dress rehearsal on stage, backstage, and performance.
