I used to dance a fair bit many years back >>>
I visited a lot of performances and dance competitions during my competitive years. I merged my love & skill of both dance and photography during this time to create a solid skills base. Now I’m called upon to capture live high-energy performance events like this one in Darlington which has grown so well over the time it has been put on. I have had the pleasure of photographing it for the past 5 years and it is always such a good show to shoot!
I absolutely loved the return of Bionik Funk because they always bring the big moves and so much hype. I wanted to [get up ahh] get-on-up (sorry!) and throw down a few of my own moves, even if they might have looked very minor in comparison! This year they upped their game and came as a three-set crew; each having their own dynamic style and flow.
Anyway, after my fond mini-story of a dancing past here is a selection of photos from the day which go to show how awesome this dance festival is! Oh, if you share any of these shots would you please credit www.scottakoz.com in the description? It means people know who took them. Thanks!
