Bring Your Best Poses
Once you’ve done some research on the dance company or school that you want to audition for, you should start to think about which poses you would like to highlight. Which poses emphasize your best qualities as a dancer? You know, those poses that really show off your best work. Bring those to the photography studio and be sure to communicate with your photographer to let them know what you are thinking. We may know dance poses and modeling, so we can help you get into poses that look best on camera but only you know your best poses.
