Picture Day 2017 Sunday, April 30 – 9:00am to 4:30pm
at the DanceWorks Kenora Studio
Attendance is required at picture day, even if you do not plan to purchase pictures. The goal is for the group photo for each class to include all dancers. If you know you are unable to attend or if there is illness or an emergency on the day of Picture Day please notify Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling or texting 807-464-3666.
Picture Day Details
Group photos will be taken for each class or performance (including solos, duets, and trios). Photos will be taken by Colleen Serban from 9:00am to 4:30pm at the studio on Sunday, April 30. You need only attend for the time slot of your class (or classes). Expect to be at the studio for 30-60 minutes as the schedule (listed below) is only approximate.
There is no charge if your dancer is only participating in their class photo. Individual photos (aside from solos) will only be taken if the family has paid a deposit fee of $30 (cash only). Dancers in multiple performances that want an individual picture in different costumes need only pay one deposit. As well, families with siblings each getting individual pictures will only pay one deposit.
Your final image selections and order will be made after the images are posted online to a private site (on or around May 9, 2017). From that password protected site you will have 1 week to review the images and select your preferred shots and the print sizes or gift items you would like to order. Order details, including photo packages and prices, are posted below. If you only want to purchase the group photo the price starts at $15 for one 5×7. For anyone who had an individual picture taken the minimum order is $30 and your deposit will be deducted from your final price.
Please come prepared on Picture Day knowing if you are getting an individual picture or not and have your $30 deposit (cash only) ready. If your dancer is in more than one routine please decide in advance which costumes they are getting individual pictures in. While there is no additional charge for a second photo please be mindful of the busy Picture Day schedule and only have pictures taken in multiple costumes if you intend to purchase prints of each individual picture.
Accounts must be up to date in order to receive your picture order. If your account is overdue please contact Erin in order to arrange a payment plan. Pickup dates for photo orders will be communicated after Picture Day.
We will work on picture poses during classes this week to help the day run smoothly. Dancers should be wearing light makeup for pictures (less than stage makeup but enough to emphasize features for the photos) and should have their hair done in the correct style for their dance. Don’t forget the correct tights and shoes!
Festival performance classes should be prepared the same as for their performance. Creative Movement level classes (Monday, Thursday, and CM & Tap Tues) need ballet pink or white tights, slippers and their hair in a ponytail (no frizzy pieces). Creative Movement & Tap Saturday will have hair in pigtails and will need ballet pink or white tights.
Picture Day Schedule
Classes will arrive at different times in order to reduce congestion at the studio. We will be using Inglenook Studio as a staging and prep area, when you arrive please enter directly through the art studio doors. Parents will be asked to wait in the art studio area while dancers enter the dance studio for their pictures.
Call times for each class are listed below. Please arrive no later than the listed time with hair and makeup done. Costumes and any accessories (tights, shoes, hair pins, etc) should be worn for the class picture. After pictures are completed you remain responsible for your costume until Recital.
