Dancing with the Stars

Saturday's assignment took me over to Township Auditorium to photograph Dancing with the Stars Live for ABC Television.

My job was to produce behind-the-scene, group and performance images.













I have a new respect for how hard these dancers prep for the show. Check out the image of Emma Slater stretching her leg before the performance. She is on the floor and puling leg parallel with her body.

The dancers cannot pull a muscle during the show so the workout before the performance is critical.

Jackets get the finishing touches before the show. 



The wardrobe team makes their final checks. Dancers change dozens of times during the show.

Underneath the stage is a maze of curtains where dancers hang out before and during the show. Here, the men pose for a promotional photo. Third from right is Bobby Bones, the recent winner of Dancing with the Stars.
