Dance Photography

 

Today we show you a photo session that we did with a duo of 'Sevillana' dancers.

The 'Sevillana' is an exciting style of dance and song that was born in Castile, Spain.  
This style of dance is performed at parties of all kinds throughout Spain,especially during the feria, when women will wear the Traje Gitanas, the colourful polka-dot dresses that add a swirling character and grace to the dance.
The dance can be very sensual, although the pair will never touch each other until the final moments when the man will put his arm around the waist of the woman to finish the dance. The sevillana was originally a courting dance where the man sets out to  the woman in a display similar to two mating flamingos. In the old Spanish tradition, young couples were limited in there courting games, the man would spend the night talking to his girl, through the iron grills of her door or window, and if they did get the chance to go for a walk, they would most definitely be chaperoned by the girl’s mother, sister, or whole family.  We don't see that anymore :P

 

Here are the photos of when we left Muswell Hill, in North London and took our dancers to the studio.
