As always, DCLX was great. As the years go by I am amazed at the faces around me that stay the same and I am thankful for the new smiles that join my circle. I haven't been to Glen Echo since before the pandemic and during this visit I was in absolute awe of how lucky we are to get to dance in such a space. It truly is something special.

I don't often pull my camera out at dance events for a variety of reasons; I don't like indoor lighting, I feel uncomfortable photographing people in spaces where I am not as well known as a photographer, and mostly that I want to expend my creative energy dancing. However, so many people had their cameras out this year I felt obligated to take mine out and snap a few shots, mostly outdoor ones. At the end you will find a vlog of the Sunday afternoon jam where Steve Fox absolutely smashes it on the mic. Here's what I got...

Oh Yeah, I also got up and sang Bye Bye Blackbird which I have been practicing for some time now... it still needs some more practice. However, I did enjoy getting to sing with the largest band and in front of the largest group of people I have ever sung for, so it was definitely a new challenge! First time singing for dancers as well, hopefully there will be many more and each one will sound progressively better.
