2011 Sundancer Tryouts

I’ve had a lot of good fortune in getting to photograph this great group of dancers, and although my attendance was cut short by another gig, I always walk away with a renewed appreciation of how much work it is to go through the tryouts (from a dancer’s perspective) and how much work it is to organize the tryouts (from the coach’s perspective.)

Lucinda, who took back the coaching duties after a year off, had everything running like a well oiled machine. A former Sundancer, she is super-organized and I like to have her around when I’m photographing the group; she’s great with direction and knows exactly what she wants–she makes my job easy!

I’m not sure of who made the squad as of this writing, so here a some of my favorite shots in the short time I had with the group.



Sundancers @ NMSU-UNM game

With the NMSU football team struggling as of late, the one thing you can count on is a great performance from the Sundancers. Here they are at the UNM/NMSU game, and while the Aggies squeezed by with a win, the highlight for me was the halftime show (and the C4CR presentation).

I’m not sure if the baton twirler counts as a Sundancer, so I decided to through in a shot for good measure!
