Individual and Class Pictures

Individual and group picture week is April 16-20 at Dance Academy West. There will not be any regular dance classes during this time. We have a wonderful photographer come and take pictures of all our dance classes. We will use all group pictures for a fabulous display to hang in our studio. This will serve as a way to document all our special dancers from the 2017/2018 dance season! Please follow these simple steps to ensure fantastic individual and group photos:

Step 1

Prior to picture week, please take the time to remove all jewelry, loud fingernail and toenail polish, any markings of pen or paint, and faux tattoos. Also, please clean the tops and bottoms of all dance shoes and remove any stickers. 

Step 2

Come to your dance class(es) the week of April 16-20 dressed in your dance costume with a cover-up over the costume to protect it, hair fixed in your assigned recital hairstyle, proper dance tights, and bring all your dance shoes. Please make sure that costumes, accessories, and all dance shoes are clearly labeled with your dancer's name. 

Step 3

When you arrive at the studio, please check in at the table in front of Room B. You will fill out a photo card. This card will indicate to the photographer if your dancer will be taking individual photos, how many costumes, if they have a sibling you wish to have photographed together, or if you are taking group photos only. Your dancer must have this card in order to take their individual and/or group photo. Also, payment is due at this time for any dancer taking individual photos. Payment is CASH or CHECK ONLY. NO credit or debit cards will be accepted. Please make checks payable to Mark Gammill. Dancers will enter Room B when it is time for their pictures. Parents, please wait in the lobby until your dancer is finished. This cuts down on distractions and keeps us on schedule.

Step 4

Payment is as follows: $45 fee per dancer, includes up to 2 costumes, 2 images in each costume, and a group picture of each class or 4 images and group picture if dancer only has one costume. $5 each additional costume photographed and includes 2 images in each costume and a group picture. Siblings receive $10 off the second sibling.

Step 5

All images will be emailed in a file for you to download by May 20th. All images are digital images only. You can purchase prints and other items, such as mugs, mouse pads, canvas prints, and refrigerator magnets at
