Carmel Jane Photography is the UK’s leading dance and stage photography company, with over 500 regular dance school clients, large and small. We provide a professional, efficient and seamless photo system for your annual dance show.
Pre-Show Dance Portraits
From ballet to body-popping, from tap dance to twerking, from leaping to lyrical, from jumps to jive, our photographers will capture your dancers at their very best. We swing into action to photograph all of the dancers in all of their costumes on the pre-show photo day.
We carefully print and pack the pictures ready to be premiered on show night. Parents can browse the photos in the foyer while they are waiting for curtain up and again during the interval. They just purchase on the night and take the treasured memories home with them.
Every dancer, every costume, photographed by experienced photographers who highlight the costumes and choreography.

Absolutely fantastic. As principal of the HOT Academy, I was so impressed with the speed and ease of setup and how efficient and personable Michelle (the photographer) was. Gemma at head office was also a pleasure to work with and ultimately the photos are AMAZING, FABULOUS, BRILLIANT. I’ve found our resident photographers!Thank you CJP
Lovely service on the phone and email – super helpful and kind. Our photographer, Helen, was brilliant and happily just got on with photographing all our little dancers on a very busy show day (thank you!). The photos are great and really capture the day both on and off stage. We received loads of images and very fast too. Will definitely be booking again!
We have used CJP for 3 or 4 years now for our Theatre School show photos and studio shoots. The level of professionalism and service is of another class. Every year we are blown away with the undivided attention we receive, the quality of their work and the sheer speed that they work in!
