Dance Wonderland Showcase at The Pinery at the Hill

Updated: May 3, 2019


Dance Wonderland held the "It's a Great Night for Dinner and Dancing" dance showcase at The Pinery at the Hill in Colorado Springs a week ago. Dance Wonderland is a locally-owned professional dance studio specializing in ballroom dance, jazz, tap, and musical theater. The showcase was an opportunity for the students and instructors to show off all of their hard work and great choreography. The Pinery at the Hill is a gorgeous venue for formal events overlooking Colorado Springs, and was a perfect setting for the evening's festivities.


I ended up really liking how a lot of the pictures came out in color for this event. I think the lighting and colorful dresses helped, as well as the city lights shining through the windows at night.


To start, a few shots to establish the setting!

I arrived early to catch some of the guests socializing before the festivities began.

Dancers of all ages and experiences showed us some great moves and looked like they had a great time doing it.
