Q&A with Dance Photographer Cobey Rouse

About 18 months ago, we noticed a dance photographer pop up in our feed named Cobey Rouse, from Rouse Productions  Since then, we've slowly watched his connection in the dance community grow - from photographing high school dance teams in his Lakeville, Minnesota community to traveling to UDA nationals with some of the most talented collegiate dance teams.  

What's been even more fun to see is Cobey's approach to his photography and business.  We've never interacted with a more humble and giving photographer, and his mission - to promote the sport of dance - comes through in so much of his work!  It's clear he has a passion to elevate the sport, and this passion fuels his photography. 

We asked Minnesota local, to give us a little more insight into his passion for preserving these extraordinary moments, particularly when working with dancers.  Check out his answers and some of his work below!

Dance athletes are continuously pushing the boundaries and redefining the limits of the sport, and this holds particularly true at the 2024 UDA College Nationals.  With unique choreography, transitional costumes, and tributes to dance history - this year brought numerous surprises that will continue to linger in our thoughts!

We feel fortunate to have collaborated with many exceptionally talented teams for their custom dance costumes. The vision, creativity, and performances not only inspired the dance community this weekend, but resonated worldwide.   We are truly in awe of the talent and dedication poured into perfecting these routines. 

Congratulations to all the athletes at UDA!  Watching you perform is the best part of our job. 

Check out performance videos and photos from some of the collegiate dance teams we had the privilege of outfitting for the competition, below!

The rhinestones on the back total around 1,000 stones in 4 different colors that were all done by hand! Our own Director of Customer Relations, Lindsey, is their teacher during the weeknights and created the costume and choreography idea.

A visit from our friends in Michigan- Phoenix Synchronized Skaters!

Posted by Lindsey on Feb 3, 2011

The 2011 Midwestern & Pacific Coast Sectional Championships are in Rochester, MN this year and that means only an hour and half drive from our office in Eden Prairie. The Phoenix Synchronized Skaters and their coaches, Jeannine Weinschrod and Helene Wolf, along with many parents drove in 2 large coach buses to pay us a visit before they took the ice this morning. We gave them a tour of the building and talked them through the process on how we made their skating dresses from start to finish- they were impressed! The little skaters were also very enamoured with Oscar and Jessie and almost took them away on the bus back to Rochester :)
