Last month under the Apollo Theater Education department, I had the opportunity to capture a Family Showtime performance featuring excerpts from James Brown: Get On The Good Foot – A Celebration in Dance. Presented by the Apollo Theater, this vivacious and soulful production made me want to abandon my Saturday night plans and come back to enjoy the evening performance without a camera in front of my face!
