Picture Day  

We’re thrilled to announce that picture day is making a grand return! This exciting event gives our talented dancers the chance to capture their class moments in their dazzling Recital costumes. Whether you prefer group photos or striking individual shots, we’ve got you covered. And here’s the best part: you can conveniently purchase these delightful dance memories during the recital dress rehearsal—a true one-stop shop!

  Dancers are not required to participate in picture day, but it's an engaging experience and offers a wonderful opportunity to create lasting memories through photography. 

Please arrive no more than 10 minutes early for your dancers' time slot.

The schedules for Picture Day are in attached document. Click here to open it.

Photographers will take class and individual photos of dancers. You will have the ability to view and purchase your photos are the Dress Rehearsal for Recital, how easy?! Dancers must arrive in full costume with hair and makeup done with the correct color tights and shoes. A list will be sent out with the tights/shoes details for each class. All dancers will need to purchase CAPEZIO ULTRASOFT tights (the colors will vary, so please wait until the list is sent out). Everyone must wear tights with their costume.

*Dancers should not wear any jewelry, nail polish, or undies(the tights have a lining in them, and undies stick out on the side of the leotard, so this will prevent that)

Hair must be pulled back into a bun with a part over the left eye. View the attachment and video below for instructions and details. Remember, practice makes perfect! Practice on your dancer when you can as this will also be the required hairstyle for Recital/Dress Rehearsal.
