Summer Nights: Tropical Zouk

The concert got going just after dark. The music was salsa inspired and perfect on a warm southern night.
The band was into their third song when the oldish couple in front of us jumped up and started dancing and then bit by bit half the 250 strong audience was up and boogying away. There were children, teenagers, parents, grandparents and the teachers of the local salsa class all dancing together, everyone having fun.
I tried to capture the scene but, you know, they just wouldn't keep still!

Fun photo! Dancers are hard to photograp, always moving and grooving. But you captered the atmosphere and that is what is important.
