Photo Shoot Orders

Spring Photo Shoot

COSTUMES: Most dancers will receive a costume that was ordered for him/her for the Thumbelina performance. When those arrive, they will be passed out to students to take home, try on and keep for the Dress Rehearsal(s) and Show(s). For the photo shoot, dancers should wear or bring their performance costume. Dancers are responsible for their own tights, shoes, and/or jazz pants or shorts that may be a part of their costume. Dancers in Level 4-6 Ballet classes, or Level 3 Saturday class (Picnic Party), some Boys costumes, and Jazz 3A, 3B, 4-6 will have a studio costume provided by the studio. Please be sure to specify each costume/part for each photo time slot that you sign up for. Remember, the photos are for you and your family, so you can decide if you want your dancer to have some light make-up or not.

PACKAGE PRICES: Photo Packages are $37 each and include one 5X7, two 4X6 photos and four wallets. You may choose to order a second photo package for $27 for the same dancer in a 2nd costume or a pose with a friend/sibling. Be sure to select a second time slot, up to three maximum. The additional package pricing is only available for a 2nd costume or joint picture. For another dancer, you must submit a separate form.
