14 Guys and a Pretty Girl

If you have never been to a quinceanera (a 15th birthday celebration for a Hispanic girl), I would highly recommend trying to get invited to one. And if you see one like Elsy’s you’re in for an incredible experience. Elsy came to the Quad-Cities this past weekend from near Springfield, Illinois to have her quinceanera. Unlike other quinces I’d photographed, she had no girls in her court. Instead it was 14 guys and her younger brother. The guys played a small part in the mass at church. But Elsy gets the award for most creative, elaborate and entertaining quinceanera waltz and subsequent dances during the reception. (I think it was 5 dances, but I lost count.) But watching 14 young men and a young woman through a series of dances that was part waltz, part ballet, part cheerleader moves and part hip hop was more entertaining and comparable to seeing professionals on a stage perform.
