These are the rest of the shots from the Amarain Student Showcase, December 13th (for the first set see the prior posting, Dance the Huda).

This is a mixed batch of photos, ranging from the very good to the very bad. Most of the ones I consider bad were shot in flash. Flash, especially the on-board flash, can be harsh. In some cases here it really ruins the picture.

On the bright side, the ambient light shots worked much better. And in some shots - notably Hafiza's - the shots were really good. Anyhow, enjoy the shots and ladies, again thanks for having me!

Let's dance the Huda...

Or however it is spelled

This past weekend was the Amarain Student Showcase, held in Kenosha at the Ruether High School Auditorium.

The ladies - and one gentleman (hey Jim) - worked their bottoms off for this one.

The Huda was the last student number in the show. The 20 shots linked to this entry (and to that picture) are from the preshow last minute practise of the number.

I'm far from a great photographer so these shots don't do the dancers justice. But I hope they at least give and idea of how much energy and fun went into this performance.

FYI - there's another set of photos coming being posted, hopefully tomorrow, from the dress rehearsal held earlier in the week. You'll get an email when they get posted.
