Be sure to also check out Cheryl’s post today on Facebook and Instagram recapping the team’s results from the Applause Talent competition! We have a super-talented group of dancers and instructors at FootNotes!Congratulations to ALL dancers and their instructors and choreographers! Well done!!
***Reminder (and please remind your dancers): Photos may be posted on social media, but DO NOT post videos of any dances until AFTER this competition season is over.
Below are details about Timing and Hair and Make-up for Picture Week, along with specifics about securing your dancer’s spot for individual pictures.
Click here to access the FootNotes group picture schedule…we thought we would share it here for easy access. Picture Week runs from Sunday, April 25 through Thursday, April 29. Check the schedule above for days and times when your dancer’s pictures will be taken…note for some groups that it may be on multiple days.
Hair and Make-up for Picture Week:
Dancers need to be in Vibe competition hair and stage make-up (no lashes…but you do need mascara) for all group dances.
For ballet (If your dancer’s ballet pics are NOT on the same day as other company group pictures), dancers should wear their hair in a high bun at the crown of their head (follow the natural upsweeping line of the cheekbone for correct alignment of the bun; it should be high but not on top of their head). There should be no part in the hair.
At the Studio: Space in the studio will be limited during picture week. ALL GROUPS: If you have 1 or 2 pictures being taken on any given day, please do not bring your Dream Duffel. Just bring your dancer’s costume, shoes and accessories in a smaller bag. Please come “picture-ready” (make-up and hair completely done) and dressed in your first costume. Bring make-up and hair accessories for touch-ups. Plan to be flexible given the space constraints.
Moms and dancers: please remember to wear your masks in the studio. Dancers will take their masks off to be photographed, but will wear them in between photo sessions.
IMPORTANT: Releve links – Review/take action on these, THIS WEEK!
Please visit this link for all RelevePHOTO info: click here
To make a Deposit for pictures (this also “schedules” with Releve that you want your dancer to have an individual picture taken): click here
This deposit is REQUIRED for Solo, Duos, and Trios, if you want your dancer photographed in her solo/duo/trio costume(s). Releve will not be able to accommodate ‘last minute’/same day sign-ups for solos/duos/trios. You must sign-up for an available “Comp Session” slot for FN. There are slots each day…an example of what you are looking for is: FN – Sun25 | compSESSION. Click on the link, and you will see the timeslots available. There are “compSESSIONs” on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. If you cannot find a day that works for your dancer’s schedule, reach out to Releve staff at email@example.com
If you want your dancer photographed individually in a group dance costume, you should also make a deposit for that dance, so that Releve knows how many individual photos they will be taking for each group dance. It helps them with timing/planning. The Deposit you make ahead of time can be used for any pictures that you end up purchasing from Releve. Click here and go to the “Deposits” tab to learn more about how the Deposit works.
If you ordered USB(s) of the 2021 Showcase performances (Saturday and Sunday shows), they will be ready for distribution this Sunday, April 18 at the Applause competition. Amy Smith will be distributing the USB’s and will give them to group moms to distribute to those that purchased them.

Let’s make some noise at APPLAUSE TALENT this coming weekend! Let’s give our BIGS & LITTLES an “APPLAUSE” with this fun hand clapper! Clappers will be at the studio for the dancers to pick up through Thursday of this week (April 12-15).
Please pick up a clapper to decorate for your BIG or LITTLE. You can use paint pens, permanent markers, jewels, etc. BE CREATIVE! Bring your decorated clapper to Applause this Sunday to give to your BIG or LITTLE during the competition so that everyone can use them to make some noise during the awards session! 👋
