Individual and Class Pictures

Individual and group picture week is TBA, at Dance Academy West. There will not be any regular dance classes during this time. Simply come to your classes this week dressed in your costume with your recital hair and proper dance tights with the exception of Jazz 4 and Contemporary 5. 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 2018/2019 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 TBA 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 front desk. 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. Credit/debit cards, cash, or checks acceptedPlease 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. Credit/Debit Cards, cash, and checks are acceptable forms of payment. Make checks payable to Mark Gammill. Individual picture charges cannot be put onto your account. 

Step 5

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