Triptych of dance jumps

I have done a few shoots with dancers, both for conceptual/experimental images and portfolio sets that include jumps. The latter have been with very experienced dancers and is an area I really enjoy. I must admit, I prefer the results from studio shoots than location shoots, especially for jumps and floor shots - the main reason being the clean and uncluttered background forces the emphasis to be on the dancer. I guess this reflects my approach to portrait photography anyway, a simplistic background with the subject being the mode.
