2020 Picture Week Schedule TBA!

General Info:

  • Dancers should arrive in costume, hair and makeup ready. Please wear a cover up over your costume, and never eat in costume!
    • The studio will be open 30 minutes prior to the first picture in case you come straight from work/school and need to get ready in studio B prior to your scheduled picture time.
  • This is a good time to test your “costume box!” Dance bags can get messy, we recommend bringing your costume box instead.
  • Parents/siblings/guardians should wait in the lobby while dancers are being photographed. We understand you are excited to see your dancer’s photos, but it can be a big distraction for students to see their parents watching. We promise to make sure every detail is perfect!
  • Studio A is our “picture studio.” Studio B is reserved for dancers who have multiple costumes and need to change. Students, siblings, and parents who are not assisting a dancer change should wait in the lobby. Dancers should get changed/ready as quickly as possible and act professionally while waiting. There should be no acrobatics, dancing, or activities that could cause injury to oneself or another dancer, please!
  • Nude Leotard/Appropriate Undergarments:
  • Tights/Shoes:
    • Please have correct brand and color tights and shoes. Our class attire requirements are listed in detail on our “Class Attire” section of our website, and ***be sure to check the costume boards a few weeks before picture week in case your dancer needs different colored/style tights.***
  • Hair And Make Up:
    • Hair should be performance ready and as described on the Costume Boards.
    • Hair should be slicked back with no bangs or “fly-aways,” hair pieces attached.
    • No nail polish, please! “French tips,” nude, or clear polish is okay.
    • All dancers should wear performance make up to picture week.
      • All dancers in level 1, 2, and 3 need Milani 07 “Best Red” lipstick for picture day and Spring Showcase. Bright lights wash out dancer’s faces.
      • Creative Movement and Foundations dancers are asked to wear dark pink lipstick for pictures.
