Black Tutu Squad - Kalamazoo Dance photography
Black Tutu Squad, Kalamazoo, MI
  1. Can boys join the Black Tutu Squad?
    YES!  We would love to have some male dancers.  Originally I was inspired by a black tutu to create something new for the dancers in the area...hence the Black Tutu Squad name.  You don't have to wear a black tutu to become part of our squad...of course, I could envision some fun shoot ideas WITH a tutu.  
  2. Do I have to love ballet to join the squad?
    We love all forms of dance.  You can rock some hip hop style with a black tutu and combat boots.  You can go barefoot and find your inner modern dancer.
  3. How old do I have to be to join?
    BTS is geared towards middle school and high school students who dance at all of the various studios in the area.
  4. I'm not flexible, can I still join and will my photos be amazing?
    I hear you!  I was never the most flexible and had to work hard to get what limited flexibility that I had.  There are so many amazing poses to show off your skills that don't include your leg by your nose.
  5. I don't have pointe shoes and I notice your dancers often wear them.
    Pointe shoes are not a requirement to dance in front of my camera!  You be you!
  6. I have an idea...can I share it with you?
    YES!  I would love to hear your ideas.  I ask for input from my squad on our various sessions...if you have an idea for a theme or location or pose, I am all ears!  This project is about all of us coming together.
  7. Will the shoots in season 5 be the same as previous seasons?
    No.  I try to make each season unique.  That doesn't mean that we might not revisit a favorite location at some point.  Or we won't do a shoot with a solid backdrop each year (I already know what color I want for Season 5!). You also have the ability to choose how to approach the different shoots.  Classic, funky, quirky.
