Competition Team Photo Shoot

Competition team photos will be taken on Monday, September 28 for each competition group for our 2020 - 2021 companies. Hannah Herrig will be taking the group photos in the surrounding area outside at JAMM/ Central Park.


Please wear all black dance attire i.e.; leggins, leotards (no tights), fitted shirts, etc with no logos on the attire. Hair can be down and straight or curled. Minimal makeup should be worn. Dancers should wear street shoes and have a warm jacket or blanket (depending on weather) around them as they wait for their photo. Shoes and blankets will not be part of the photos and will be taken off just before the shoot.


Please arrive at JAMM 5 minutes early for your group photo. The schedule for your group is listed below...


4:30-5:00 Momentum

5:00-5:30 Drive

5:30-6:00 Push

6:00-6:30 Mini Starz Co.

6:30-7:00 Edge (we will do our best to get to you ballet on time if this applies to you)

7:00-7:30 Elevate


The studio is paying for these photos so there is no charge to parents or dancers for these photos. Each group will receive a digital copy on the band page that you can individually download for your use.


Please let us know if you have a conflict. We are hoping for 100% attendance from each group.
