Dance With Me

In this introduction, the author discusses the three interrelated processes of crafting, selecting, and captioning the images included in this book. He explains how, in crafting images that tell the ballroom story, he relies on the emotion that is being performed by focusing on competitors' eyes and expressions. As part of the selection process for an image, he says he considers whether the image adds to what is being discussed and whether it is acceptable to those whom it depicts. In preparing the captions, he paid attention to what references were already in place (in the text), what context was lacking, and what elements in the image might need highlighting for those not “in the know” regarding the culture and community of ballroom dancing.
