While I was in New York, I took photos for a constantly-on-the-go couple who own and operate their own dance studio downtown. They wanted new images for their company's website, so I got to walk around their gorgeous space.
As someone who loves architecture and historic buildings, I couldn't help but inquire about it -- the ballroom was that amazing. Kerri was happy to pass along as much as she knew. Apparently the third-floor space has only been used for dance since it was built in the late 1890s. The wood beams on the vaulted ceiling had been painted green, and the owner painstakingly stripped them back to natural wood.
It was worth it.
Later, Ruben and Kerri came to my studio for headshots, but I couldn't let two dancers leave without doing a few steps. They were so much fun to work with.
