Picture Days

We would like to invite you to participate in this year's Picture Days. On March 31 & April 1, 2017, pictures will be taken by Donner Photographic - a nationally recognized company specializing in dance school photography. Students will have the opportunity to have both group and individual photos taken. Students are assigned times according to their classes and/or routines in our annual dance show, Steppin' Out '17. Although there is absolutely no obligation to buy, we highly encourage students to be present and participate in their group photos.

Due to Picture Days, no classes will be held on March 31 & April 1, 2017.

Picture Day: Helpful Hints

  • Please be on time for your scheduled appointment.
  • Students may be photographed in all costumes.
  • Students may be photographed both individually and with their class.
  • There is no obligation to purchase individual portraits.
  • Fill out one sitting card per family and give it to the photographer.
  • Freshly painted shoes will not be allowed on the background.

Costumes, Hair & Make-up

Students should come ready to have their photos taken. This includes wearing their first scheduled costume as well as hair, make-up, tights and any accessories that came with their costumes. Please bring your assigned dance shoes. Remember that dance shoes that are used in the class rooms, or on stage, should never be worn outside. Ask your student's Instructor for help with accessories, hair and make-up.

Picture Day Schedule

Although we will try to adhere to all scheduled times, occasionally delays do occur. If this would happen, for any reason, please accept our deepest apologies.

No Make-up Dates

There are absolutely no make-ups for Picture Days or Picture Pick-up Day. If you had pictures taken on one of our Picture Days, and cannot attend Picture Pick-up Day, Donner Photographic will mail proofs at an additional cost.

Red Carpet Pictures

Become your student's paparazzi by taking their photos in front of our step & repeat backdrop - complete with red carpet and velvet ropes. We highly encourage everyone to upload your star's photos to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media sites with tags: #tapnarts @tapnarts
