Dance schools across Minneapolis and central Minnesota trust Kemmetmueller Photography for their annual performance portraits. We bring the photo studio to your dance studio, setting up backdrops and lights to best capture the dancers in costume.
We photograph dance schools large and small across greater Lake Minnetonka, capturing performers that specialize in ballet, jazz, tap, modern, ballroom, hip hop, and even cheerleading. Our experienced and talented photographers take the time to bring out an authentic smile and capture your star’s personality.
As with any picture day, make sure your dancer gets a good night’s sleep and have an adequate meal beforehand. We all do our best when we are well-rested and have a full tummy. No need to do full stage makeup for the portraits, but we recommend a bit of mascara and lipstick to help features stand out. Most dance teachers will prefer a specific hairstyle, but if not, a tidy bun is the way to go.
In the days leading up to picture day, look over tights and dance shoes for runs, holes, and scuffs. It’s always a good idea to pack an extra set of tights just in case. And do not forget to bring along the various shoes needed for each costume. We also suggest that dancers warm-up before their portrait session to be able to hold more difficult poses when necessary.
Did your dancer miss out on picture day? Kemmetmueller offers retakes – contact us for information on your specific dance school’s retake day(s).
All images are available for online ordering in just ten days, and prints will be packaged and delivered to the dance studio for easy distribution to the students. Choose from high-quality photographic prints, digital images, or an assortment of photo gifts with your dancer’s picture on them.
