I know from working with choreographers in the past that they want to see the whole figure of the dancer and in dance facial expressions aren’t of any value unless of course it’s your kid up there on the stage. So a full shot is called for in order to see the full expression of the body…easy to focus on wide lens. Like someone mentioned if you target certain spots of the stage and set pre-focus marks on your lens it’s much easier to keep manual focus even in dim light. I know that’s what they do in Hollywood because all pro cameras are manual. Keep it up, sounds like you’re doing great job.
