This post includes all the details you need to know for Studio Picture Day at TFAD on Saturday, May 13Please read! The schedule was emailed to all parents, and can also be found in the above graphic (click to enlarge). We ask that all dancers attend Studio Picture Day, even if parents do not plan to purchase pictures, for the purpose of full group shots.

  • Please arrive 20 minutes before your child’s scheduled picture time to ensure that we can start promptly, and to keep the schedule running as smoothly as possible. If you are late, your child will miss the photo.No exceptions.
  • Children should be dressed in their first scheduled costume when they arrive, with hair and makeup already done. A hair (low bun, side part) and makeup tutorial is coming soon! All female dancers must be wearing tights. Recital earrings and small, non-color specific stud earrings are allowed, however all other jewelry should be removed (unless it is a part of their costume).
  • Remember to bring all of your child’s costumes, accessories, dance shoes and extra tights. Additionally, you may want to bring hairspray, bobbi pins, a comb and makeup for touch ups at the studio.
  • If your child has a wait between scheduled picture times, please feel free to bring bottled water, dry snacks (something that will not get on their costume), and quiet activities for the lobby.
  • As in previous years, parents are not allowed in the studio while pictures are being taken. Please plan to wait in the lobby, as your child may need your help if he/she has a costume change.
  • If you plan to order pictures, please bring your completed order form and full payment to Studio Picture Day. Order forms will be distributed with your child’s costume.

If you have any questions, or need to place an order for dance shoes, recital earrings, tights, leotards, makeup, etc., please contact Miss Paula at the TFAD front desk. Order deadline is April 28The studio is open to place orders MondayFriday4:30-7:30 p.m.

    • Costumes will be passed out from May 1-12 (we are still receiving some costumes). Parents will need to come into the studio and sign out their child’s costume during their class time. Costumes will be not be given to students – only parents.
    • All unpaid balances (tuition, late fees, bounced check fees, etc.) must be paid before you receive your child’s costume.
    • Costumes MAY NOT be picked up on Studio Picture Day (May 13). No exceptions.
    • Each girl will receive one pair of footed tights with their costumes.These are to be worn for photos, dress rehearsal, and recital ONLY. Things happen, so we strongly recommend purchasing 1-2 pair of extra tights per dancer. If your dancer has multiple costume changes, we recommend purchasing a pair of body tights (our older dancers prefer body tights for modesty). Additional tights can be purchased at the TFAD front desk ($5 for footed tights; $15 for body tights).
    • All boys will need mid calf solid black socks (no other color, designs or logos) for Studio Picture Day, dress rehearsal, and recital.
    • Hip Hop 11+ Class (Thurs. 7-8 p.m.) & Junior Ballet Class (Tues. 6:45-7 p.m.)All girls will need a black leotard under their costume. These can be purchased at the TFAD front desk for $20, if they don’t already own one.
  • Studio Picture Day photo order forms will be handed out with your child’s costumes. Please remember to fill these out and bring them back to Picture Day with full payment if you plan to order prints.

If you have questions, please see Miss Paula at the TFAD front desk. The last day to place orders for leotards, dance shoes, recital earrings, makeup, etc. will be Friday, April 28.

Our younger dancers may sit with their parents in the auditorium during Act 2.

Talent Factory is offering a fundraiser to assist our families with upcoming costume expenses that are due in November. This fundraiser was very successful last fall, and many of our students were able to pay for multiple costumes by participating. We will be selling 9 oz. Beckley’s Best Blends Soy Candles – a family-owned business in Indiana. More information about these candles are included in your fundraiser kit. The best thing about this fundraiser is that is is exclusive to Talent Factory, so you’re not competing with other clubs or organizations!

The candles sell for $10.50 each. You earn $3 per candle. So, for example, sell 25 candles x $3 per candle = $75 earned. This equals one dance recital costume!

Each fundraiser kit comes in a bag and includes the following: order form, collection envelope, and 10 sample cups (one for each scent) for your customers to sniff. Each family will receive ONE fundraising kit. Although the lids are labeled, we strongly recommend labeling the bottoms of the sample cups with a marker. It is easy to mix the cups and lids up by accident.

These candles make great gifts. Don’t forget about your bus driver, teachers, coaches, hairdresser, preacher, secret pal, boss & mail carrier! The unique names of the scents make these candles awesome White Elephant or gag gifts.

Things to Remember:

1. Your customers will need to make their checks out to YOU.

2. Sell to people you know. We discourage door-to-door sales for the safety of our dancers.

3. The fundraiser is not mandatory.

4. If you choose to participate in the fundraiser, please see Miss Paula at the front desk to pick up a fundraising kit. You may pick up your kit starting today (the studio will be open from 4:30-7:30 p.m.).

5. If you family decides NOT to participate, please return the packet to the front desk at Talent Factory.

Orders are due with payment in full (minus $3 per candle that YOU keep) byThursday, November 10. Please make one check or money order out to TALENT FACTORY. We will only accept checks from our parents – not your customers. Cash is also accepted. Debit and credit card will NOT be accepted for the fundraiser.

Please direct any questions to Miss Paula or the Talent Factory front desk.

Good luck, and Happy Selling!
