Pictures in our beautiful dance costumes will be taken on Wednesday, February 6, Thursday, February 7, 2019. This is the time to take individual and group pictures in your fabulous dance concert costumes. The pictures will be taken at the studio by a professional dance photographer.

Normal classes will not be held on Wednesday, Feb 6 & Thursday, Feb 7. 


Pictures will be taken individually in all the dance concert costumes. I would like to ask that all PLEASE show for picture day. We do take a group picture and it often means a lot to the families and me when all classmates are in the picture. Group photos are taken 1st, so don't be late for your picture time, Individual shots will follow - see picture times posted below.  ALL CLASS GROUP PICTURES ARE ALSO IN THE AWESOME DANCE CONCERT PROGRAM BOOK - too fun! Once again, it's important that all are in the group photos. 

For those of you that have purchased pictures in the past years you know how fabulous the pictures are!! Picture prices are comparable to school photo packages. If we can help with any questions please let us know - happy to help!


Even if you do not want to take individual pictures, please plan to attend for the group photo. All group photos are in the dance concert program book and are very important to all. Thank you!!!

2019 Costume Picture Schedule



Please make every effort to show for your picture days and times, as all group photos are placed in our awesome dance concert program book.  Please remember that any/all friend pictures of any kind are to be taken at the end of each picture day, pending the purchase of the friend package.  All will need to fill out a form upon arrival and all dancers will need to have the form in hand when they are in line for pictures.  The photographerhas asked that parents stay out of the room with the photographer, as parents tend to be a distraction.  Please remember your dance etiquette and please be courteous, as there are others waiting in line and all have a time schedule to keep.  Also, please be sure to share the dressing space.  If able, please arrive in advanced dressed and ready for your pictures – thank you!! All dancers are more than welcome to wear their hair any way that they wish for pictures.  However, all must have a HIGH BUN for the dance concert weekend in May.  More picture info, including prices, etc will be sent to all at a later date.
