Express beyond shapes with Jingzi Zhao    
July 20, 2022 at 12 noon EST / 9 am PST

Dance is more than a sequence of movements: It's an expression. It communicates ideas, emotions, and stories through movement.  That's how I like to approach dance photography.  How to provide dancers meaningful context to improvise, and how to use lighting techniques to add drama and space for interpretation are the areas that I have been working on and want to share with others.

SafeSport® Trained Core course

Many dance photographers work with dancers under the age of 18. Whether the photo sessions are part of a dance studio or custom, individual sessions, we believe dance photographers benefit from having education about how to recognize, prevent and respond to different types of abuse. We highly recommend theSafeSport® Trained Core course as a place to begin your education.

A comprehensive 90-minute overview of facts, principles, and strategies to help you provide safe and positive sport environments. Units include:

  • Sexual Misconduct Awareness and Education

  • Mandatory Reporting

  • Physical and Emotional Misconduct (including bullying, hazing, and harassment)

Federal law gives the nonprofit U.S. Center for SafeSport an important mandate: To end sexual, physical, and emotional abuse and misconduct in amateur sport. They pursue this goal by setting athlete safety policies and reinforcing abuse prevention and accountability across the Olympic and Paralympic Movement—encompassing over 11 million athletes and allies in more than 50 sports. They help parents, coaches, athletes, and more build better sport cultures in organizations across America that stir kids to move, compete, and thrive.
