Red face A request: human poses references - in dance

Hi,

I want to paint something dynamic so I wanted to collect some photo references of people dancing. But I mean a particulair dance: waltz (the best would be the vienna waltz). I need at least one couple dancing waltz. I want to sketch similar poses and face expressions. I wanted this couple to be in a turn (in a twist) - that the woman's face is visible (woman is shown from the front) and the man's back (man is shown from the back).

I was looking for some free references in stocks but I didn't find a photo that would be like this. Everything is otherwise - the woman is shown from the back side.


The concept of this art shall be victorian or edwardian.

If you know some free stock references that are correct with my criteria, can you post a link?


Thank you in advance.

That was the first place I was looking for it. Unfortunately I saw them and I didn't see anything that would be suitable for my project. As I wrote before I need a very particular pose that is not actually much about in google images. Anyway thank you.

Question

Have you thought about asking 2 friends to pose for you?
They don't have to be dancers-Especially if you already know what it is you want from the photo. It may not be the best solution, but it is a flexible one.
