I’ve just had a short phone conversation with Seeta Patel for something to go with the image I hope will be taken by LondonDance.com.

I’m not sure what initially attracted me to the Last Day of Summer Dance Party at the Southside Ballroom in Wandsworth last Saturday. It might have been the Lemington-Nejc demo dances (you’ve probably noticed how much I enjoy shooting this dashingly dynamic dance duo) or Viktoriya Wilton and Nuno Filipe Pessoa Sabroso or…

I’ve been following Dot Dot Dot for a while, having come across Yinka Esi Graves some time ago while researching two of the long term projects I have on the burn. They’re an interesting group, fronted by three fantastic flamenco dancers all of whom are English.

It’s always great when I find a new perspective from which to show the social dances I shoot so I was really happy to discover that neither dog nor owner minded my including them in the photos.
