Two weekends ago I had the pleasure of photographing the awesome Fred Astaire Jupiter Dance Studio Spring 2009 Showcase. The showcase started with 2 amazing Acts by the students of the studio. The final act was performed by some amazing professionals, including Scottish Professional Champions, Warren & Babette Brown (who also own the popular dance school). I've photographed this showcase 4 times now and many of the students were repeat performers. It is amazing to see the how much the level of performance and technical dance ability has grown since the last show. Some of these students would put the celebrities on Dancing with the Stars to shame. The unique thing about this showcase was that a few of the students & teachers from Fred Astaire Boca Raton also joined the show, which was really cool to see. If you watch DWTS on TV like I do, you would be shocked at much faster all of this is in person. If you've ever thought about learning how to ballroom dance, you need to contact Warren & Babette at Fred Astaire Jupiter. They are truly amazing teachers and really cool people - always a pleasure working with you guys!
