Photographer's Note

Taken during a dance class in the National Ballet School in Havana. The students, about 20 were learning dance the flamenco. The noise from the repeated steps was rythmatic and created a memorable atmosphere. Using 400ASA B&W film I required better shutter speeds than the conditions allowed. We had been requested not to use flash and the use of tripods was totally impractical with subjects constantly moving. So I exposed for 1600asa and push-processed the film. The enhancment of the grain gives, I think, this picture it's impact together with the totally out of focus second figure in the background.
