Thanks for the advice!

How did you ask her to model for you?

I know some local dance classes; but mostly they're for school students, and it's very difficult to ask younger people to model nowadays. I assume she sits for you alone and not in a class of several?

Most of my models are hired for experience by the School of Art.. I need more than photo references for variety :S
