I was thinking it was a difficult lighting situation and you handled it
The thing is if you can do THIS kind of shooting, you could do
party/event photography with ease... better you than me, on that score,
could use your stuff from these dance events to show what you can do...
I like that shot Malcom and Marco mentioned too, but my favorite was

Thanks Ann. If only dance events actually had the money to pay. It's
nice that they are now contacting me ahead of time and offering me
discounts off my registration, at least from the "it's nice to be
appreciated" point of view.
Apart from the musicians and the instructors, these events tend to be
all volunteer with even the local dancers providing housing for people
from out of town. I mostly do the photography as a way of giving back
to the community.
I can't claim much credit on the lighting, that is what was there. The
LED lights were nice in some ways, but they really have their own sets
of challenges. It helps that the room was reasonably bright anyways.
To me it would be as much torture as shooting a wedding.
There's a big difference, I'd go to this event if I wasn't
photographing it. I'll admit that I didn't get as many photos on
Sunday night because the band was so good I didn't want to spend as
much time shooting rather than dancing.

A week ago I was at a dance workshop called the Mean Old Frisco Blues,
which happens to also be the name of a song. The music was excellent,
they started out with one of my favorite bands for dancing, and each
night the musice was even better than the last.
