Capture Memories of Your Dancer in Costume!

Pictures will be taken Monday, June 3, through Saturday, June 8, during regularly scheduled classes at FOCUS. Though purchasing photos, is not required, it is a great opportunity to get the perfect pictures for your family photo albums, and become part of FOCUS history.

We are pleased to announce that we are working again this year with Da Silva Photography. Da Silva Photography will be coming to FOCUS to photograph each dancer during their class, and to give everyone the opportunity to get a professional solo shot, as well as a group photo of their dance in their costume with make-up already applied.

If you are interested in purchasing individual and/or group photos, Da Silva Studios is now offering  an online portal for families to pre-register for the opportunity to have individual and group photos taken without having to choose picture packages before viewing the product. This new opportunity will decrease wait times and give you more flexibility when choosing your photo package. Pre-registration will include a $25 non-refunable deposit.

ALL DANCERS need to attend classes during Photo Week and come in full costume and make-up to take the group photo even if you do not plan to purchase a photo for yourself. More information to come; don’t miss out! Competing Dance pictures will be taken during the same week.
NOTE: The Irvine Barclay Theatre doesn’t allow still photo cameras to be used in the theater. You may take pictures outside and backstage but not in the theater, so Photo Week is your perfect opportunity to get a professional photo to cherish for a lifetime!
