Thanks. It's not posed but shot during the production, final tech dress rehearsal, day before opening night, full stage lighting, live musicians, the works. The dancers were actually in motion.

Excellent photo that captures the emotion and focus of the dancers. Not a photo you stage in a live performance. You were at the right position at the right time and knew exactly what to do: shoot it.
