Please read all of the below information carefully as some information has changed from previous years.
Picture sign-ups will open Tuesday, March 10 at 10 am. A link to sign-ups will be available on this page at that time.
You may reserve a spot for any studio/date that is most convenient for you.
If you have more than one child and they will be taking pictures individually, please choose one slot per child. If they will only be taking a picture together, then you only need one spot for the family.
We ask that you please not reserve slots on multiple days for the same child! We do not have enough slots to allow for people to save multiple days. If you need to change dates, please do this as soon as possible and cancel the original slot to open your original spot up to someone else.
Due to the large number of students we have taking pictures, we will not be able to accommodate people who did not sign up or who show up on a different day/time than the one they are scheduled for. We do not have enough slots available to accommodate people on the second week who are no-shows to their appointments on the first week.

5th-year Group Pictures
To celebrate the milestone of hitting 5 years of dancing, we take a group picture to recognize the 5th year students in the revue book. We recognize all previous years of dance for those who have transferred from other studios.
5th-year group pictures will be taken:
Destrehan on Saturday, April 4 at 11 am
Kenner on Saturday, April 18 at 11 am
Mandeville on Sunday, April 19 at 11 am
Attire for the 5th-year picture is a black leotard, tan tights, and jazz or ballet shoes. Hair and make-up is your choice. If you cannot make the picture at your home studio, you may take your 5th-year picture at another studio. You do not have to sign-up for the 5th year picture.
Please arrive 10 minutes before the scheduled picture time. We will take the group picture on time so that we can remain on schedule.
Class demonstrators will take a picture to be included on the demonstrator page of the revue book. Demonstrator pictures may be taken at any studio at the time you take your dance pictures. Attire will be provided for you.
