More from Ice Theatre of New York’s performance of Ice:Dance 2014 in Wenatchee, WA.

Fragile featured Ryan Bradley in a mood I’d never seen him skate: not the entertainer parading some amusing excess or drawing you into his fun with a smile, but perfectly serious and even a little balletic.

Being Ryan Bradley, there was this, too:

The moody, gray and blue-themed Reveries finished the first act.  Danseur Edward Villela choreographed the Balanchine-inspired piece, and I loved its flow and feeling. The well-choreographed ensemble skating by five talented ice dance couples was a highlight of the show. Here’s a video on the making of Reveries.

And some photos of the skaters:

Such cool action shots – did you take those? If so, how on earth did you do that? I’m assuming you have a super duper expensive camera and lens. 🙂

My husband took them. It didn’t hurt that we were sitting in the front row! It was not a very big crowd, wish they had been able to publicize and sell more tickets. He was using our Nikon D7100 and a Nikkor 18-140mm zoom lens. Perhaps not as expensive as you might think. You cannot bring a really long lens into a performance like that, they will not allow anything that they consider a professional camera.
