    Her hand even looks red. Probably a shadow but weird.

    I'd go with blood. Cutting a hand on a blade during one of those Biellmann spins is not uncommon.

    So, this is a little OT of the photo, but I've been wanting to ask this for a while...those blades are super sharp, and when dance couples do lifts where the woman has her feet on the mans thighs or legs (like standing on him), how do they prevent cuts from the blades?

    Shadow, looking at the whole picture and the bloody tinted coloration on her thigh matching the floating dress seam line.

    Those men must have "Kung Fu".

    I guess hefty weighing adults can stand on blades on their bare feet unhurt if the feet are dry and firm.

    As of thread starter's question, I think it was a shadow in this case.
