These photos are then made available to purchase in prints and digital format. These photos blow us away every year and are the perfect way to cherish the memories of a fabulous year of dancing. They also make great Christmas presents for grandparents and relatives. This year we will hold 3 photo days. Please check the list below and make a note of your allocated date/s in your diary.
