Picture Days 2020 - March 27th - 29th

Dancers should arrive at the new studio in full make up and costume. Your child may wear their hair anyway that you like for the pictures. We will be more specific when recital time rolls around!

3 - 5x7
12 wallets

Package B - $33.00

  • Make checks out to Kent Murray Photography

Packages must be paid for in advance. Kent Murray has been photographing dancers for over thirty years and does an outstanding job! As a matter of fact, Kent photographed Ms. Marilyn's childhood dance pictures. Even if you do not wish to get an individual picture made, please plan on attending so that all the dancers are included in the group photo.

We will be on a tight schedule all weekend, so please do not be late. If your call time is 9am, there is a good chance that your class will be photographed at 9am. Once a group photo has been taken, we will not go back and shoot it again. If your schduled time (take a look at our schedule) is not convenient, you may stop by anytime and we will work you in. Thank you so much for your cooperation.
