2018 Picture Day Info and Schedule

posted May 8, 2018, 11:12 AM by Stacey Dimberio

Picture date has been set for Sunday May 20 from 11:00-8:30 p.m. Pictures will be taken at the dance studio (819 north 18th ave east).  This is a great opportunity for students to get their picture taken by a professional photographer without the studio-sitting fee.  Because we will take both individual and group photos, it is important for every child to be there. Pictures are mandatory unless you have talked to Stacey and are on the excused list. Your assigned times are listed below. All efforts were made to schedule students and families in more than one class as close together as possible.  If you would like a sibling photo we will do our best (time permitting) to accommodate you. Send siblings in together at one of your assigned times. We realize May is a busy month, thanks for taking the time to fit this special day into your busy schedule. If you can’t make picture day and would like to have your individual picture taken you can schedule your own appointment by calling Fifield Portrait Design. (722-3777) Please do this before the recital.



1.      BE EARLY!! We run on 5-minute intervals as log as everyone is on time and ready.


2.      If you are only in 1 number, try to dress at home as changing space is limited


3.      It is up to you how you want to wear hair and makeup. A little makeup usually looks nice however these are your pictures.


4.      Pictures are paid for when ordered. They will be on display at both rehearsal and recital


5.      Costumes must be completed by pictures. Sewn not pinned, proper shoes and tights. Have names on all costumes pieces. No gum, jewelry, nail polish or underwear. Proper tap shoe ties are needed.


If you have any questions about pictures call the studio at 728-6080.
