Backstage Pass

Last week I was lucky enough to spend a few hours backstage with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet as they rehearsed for their opening night of Moulin Rouge at the National Arts Centre.

I don't have a lot experience around dance, so it was such a cool afternoon. And as I mentioned in my last week's post, the NAC folks and all of the RWB dancers were so welcoming and accommodating. Such open access allowed me to capture images and an intimate backstage perspective that even the most loyal dance fans would rarely get to see.

A big part of the shoot and/or the collection of this kind of imagery for the NAC is to share it on the NAC's flickr stream to give their patrons and fans an intimate glimpse into the backstage experience.
