If you’re a frequent visitor of Art of Dance events, you’ve probably seen him running around on stage and through the crowd many times. If you liked one of the pictures that we shared on our socials in the past few years, chances are he was responsible for some of them. And if you’re a front row soldier, partying your ass off at our events, he’s probably caught you on camera at least once.

Yes, we’re talking about one of our photographers: Nils Klöckner, better known as Sunny4ya. This Germany-based hero is responsible for capturing your and our memories – in the best way possible. And man, is he good at that. This year we’re celebrating a huge milestone with Nils: we’re working with him for over 10 years already! Time to put him and his awesome work in the spotlight with some or our team’s favorite shots taken in the past few years.

Nils, thank you for all your hard and awesome work in the past 10 years. For always being at the right spot, at the right time. For the thousands of incredible shots. For the laughs backstage. It’s a pleasure working with you and we hope we may relive many more of our events through your eyes.
