COMPANY HEADSHOTS!
THIS SUNDAY: 3:00-8:00pm!

We will be taking Company (Principal & Corps) and Pre-Company photos this Sunday, October 8th!

We will be taking individual photos of  ALL competition dancers, Corps, Principal & Pre-Company,  so EVERYONE needs to attend! 
  • Please wear your company leotard and have your hair down and fixed nicely! This is a picture representing our awesome 2017/18 Company Team and we want everyone to look polished! Makeup is optional. :)
  • For dancers with rehearsals on Sunday during these times, you'll need to plan on taking your pictures around your rehearsal times! Our awesome new front desk CS staff member, Kristina Landkamer (also a professional photographer), is taking the pictures and will have a master list of all students who need their picture taken. You can arrive prior to rehearsal (no earlier than 3:00pm), fit the picture in between rehearsals, or stay after your rehearsal!
  • Company & Pre-Company dancers who do not have rehearsal this Sunday can show up any time between 3:00pm and 8:00pm to get their picture taken-HOWEVER, the preferred time for you to show up to avoid long waits would be between 4:00-5:30pm!
