Headshots are Hard
Yesterday we had a photo session with the wonderful Arn Klein to take some new headshots. My dancers decided to call me “Tyra” as I bossed them around from the other side of the lens. Then I was convinced to take my turn in front of the camera….
I was quickly reminded that I’m a much better behind-the-scenes participant than I am otherwise. There is a reason that I make dances and don’t dance them in front of people on a stage. I’m a wimp! It was an important reminder that what I ask of my fabulous dancers everyday is HARD WORK! Whether pirouettes or headshots, they are brave women and I salute them. Having people look at you critically, from behind a camera or from an audience, is tough! I would rather hide in the wings and think critically than be the body thought of critically. I cannot do what they do and I am so lucky to have them and to have them put up with me when I boss them around.
So, thank you Amanda, Nicole, Meli and Jordana for your hard work in front of the camera yesterday. You are beautiful and strong and I aspire to have your confidence.
