HE Beginner Social [12-8-2011]

It's that time of the month again!

Welcome back to the Havana Estudio Beginner Social for the month of August 2011. As you may already know, Salsa Sam's efforts in promoting social dancing to his students are phenomenal. Many beginners are very reluctant to hit the social dance floors due to the fact that a floor full of swinging, gyrating salsa dancers may be very intimidating to a newbie.

Salsa Sam's response? Start a beginner social! The importance of this beginner social is that it provides new dancers with a great first step towards social dancing, in a secure and safe environment. In fact, senior dancers are absolutely not allowed in.

In a photographic point of view, many apologies that the photos are blur. Due to low light conditions, I decided to shoot at very low shutter speeds instead of using my flash. When I say low, I mean LOW. You try shooting at 1/13 second shutter speed. The tones, of course, turn out nicer, but I sacrifice clean and crisp pictures, for dramatic shots indicated by movement blur in order to avoid excessive background shadows (which will definitely be a problem if I start firing my speedlight).

Here are a few shots to give you an idea of how the said Beginner Socials are like. Have a look at some of my photos here and feel free to tell me what you think about them!
