Photo Shoot Schedule

Our photo shoot is coming up and we can't wait to see everyone in full costume!
The schedule is below. Please be on time and have your make up and hair done. We have a narrow window of time in the photo studio and want to make the most of it.

Female dancers need to wear pink ballet tights, pink ballet slippers/pointe shoes and a nude leotard under their costumes. Soldiers wear black jazz shoes.
Male dancers please wear a fitted white shirt and black jazz shoes. Also bring long black socks.
Follow the links below for instructions on hair & make-up.

General Picture taking rules:

Dancers must come at their assigned time in order to have time to put on their costume and be ready for pictures. 

Please come with hair and make-up done.   This is a great opportunity to practice performance hair and makeup!  Lipstick should be applied after you are in costume, and removed before you take it off.

Remember soldiers should be wearing black shoes.

Meet at C&C for costumes, then we will go to the photography studio.

Please come in your nude leotard.  We do not have enough changing rooms to accommodate everyone.  

Dancing Bras only (if needed).  We do not want to see your bra.  Don’t try to hide it.  We can still see it.  Use a dancer’s bra.
No Jewelry.  This means earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces, etc. 
No Fingernail polish! (if you have it on your toes that’s okay)

Remember you may not eat or drink in your costume.
