Heritage Classic – Ballroom Competition – Metropolitan Ballroom

After our recent shoot with Metropolitan Ballroom for their portfolio portraits, we were invited to come along and photograph the students and instructors competing in the Heritage Classic in Asheville, NC. Being new to the ballroom dancing scene; this was my first time at a competition, which words can not really capture the level of how amazing this event was to be a spectator/photographer at. Getting to see all the professionals at their best is really a site to see! Thursday was really a blast for me personally as I enjoy smooth style dancing and got to see several foxtrots throughout the evening. Friday was all about the Latin dances and it was great to see some of the students from Metropolitan competing and taking home trophies!
The location was nothing to complain about either… Grove Park Inn is a beautiful place that has scenery, architecture, and style wrapped into one! Dave and I drove up on Thursday and got right to shooting pictures. It started snowing Friday morning and we got to drive back in it all the way back to Charlotte late Friday night. Everyone did such an amazing job at the competition and it feels great to be part of the dancing community here in Charlotte. We had a blast and can’t wait until the next competition… we’ll have the cameras ready! Enjoy some of the finals from the competition:
