One of the most refreshing things I saw at last weekend's competition was the beautiful expressions and hand placements the dancers would do. I've seen so many dances all these years and I see a lot of repetitive moves and expressions so eventually, sometimes, it starts to bore me and leave me uninspired at competitions. Normally, static poses with this kind of hand work, bore me (only at live performances) even more BUT not here because the difference is that it actually looked beautiful and added to the dance perfectly without me questioning it and thinking it was useless. This moment, this photo, is one of my favorites from the weekend because it reflects all of that. And of course, this dancer had a beautiful and amazing dance!
