Overall it was a spooky night for the Fall Fling! The spirit of Halloween was all over the inside and outside of the ballroom. Still that skeleton that greeted guests at the ballroom entrance haunts me!
2019 FADS Fall Fling – Professional Shows
To cap the event, the professionals that danced with students all day put on a show. Partnering with other professionals allows them to demonstrate a higher level for the students in attendance. Giving the dance fans something to shoot for in their dancing is a great way to end this event. I know everyone will be back at the studio to start working for the next one. We hope to see you there!
The photos from last weekend’s 2020 Arthur Murray Spring Freestyles photos are now ready to view at the TimeLine Media proofing site! Following the event, I had to give a big thanks to the team that helped me get through this weekend. Undoubtedly I would not have made it through without them. A couple of days before the event, I threw out my back loading and unloading gear out of my car! It made me much less productive than usual for the setup and photographing this weekend. Surprisingly, we did not have any issues – maybe I am not as essential as I thought!

The Hilton McLean in Tysons, VA was the venue again for the DC Area Arthur Murray studios to gather. In addition to the studios that regularly attend, we were happy to see the new Arthur Murray Richmond studio come with their students! By and large the event ran smoothly even with a delayed start on Friday afternoon.
We had the chance to get out on the dance floor this time. The team of photographers that we had working with us were very reliable, and we need to shake off some dancing rust. Thanks to everyone that stopped by the booth to say hello, and to check out the posters we made from the last event. I have tried to sort all the photos by studio, but I am sure there are some misfiled ones in there. In that case, please send me an email, and I’ll be sure to correct them. Thank you!
The 2019 Fall Freestyles photos are expiring soon! Given that we have new 2020 events coming online, we need to make room on the server. To be sure our record-setting Freestyles takes a lot of space! Thanks to everyone that purchase holiday gifts from the site. Before they are archived, the photos will be here:
During the professional competition, I was tense! as I have noted, these are not as good for my photos compared to the shows. On this occasion, there seemed to be more competitors than usual. Because of that fact, it was difficult to get photos of everyone. For fear that I would miss, I tried to capture one photo of a couple, then move on. It was a bit frantic, and I was unsure if I was getting anything good.
For the Rhythm heats, I changed my position. By comparison there would not be as much chance to see everyone. By elevating my position above the crowd, I was assured of a clearer path to the floor. In short, I think I covered it, but I know I could have done better!
