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!
Grit and glamour collided this past weekend at one of the most prestigious collegiate championships - UDA College Nationals.
After months of hard work and determination, dance and cheer teams from all over the nation showed up in a big way. We're lucky to collaborate with so many incredibly talented teams on their custom dance costumes and we were inspired by the creativity, performances and sparkle! Congratulations to all of the athletes! Check out some of the teams we had the honor of outfitting for this event.
It's safe to say the past year has been anything but ordinary. From postponements to virtual competitions, this year brought many new challenges for competition. But it also brought us so much joy to see you work through the ups and downs to finally dance together again! It may not look the same, but the spirit and passion only dancers embody are still there!
We had the honor of working with so many local teams this year, helping routines come to life with outfits that embody each team's theme. Check out some of the Minnesota teams we were lucky enough to help create their very own #LineUpLook.
While teams are on hold, we're continuing to look back at highlights from this past season! One of our favorite competitions of the year - the Eastern Synchronized Skating Sectional Championships - was held this past January in Albany, New York. There simply isn’t a better way to capture the hard work of coaches, skaters, and costume details than some great action photos! Here's a look at some of our favorite photos from the event!
This past January, synchronized skating teams across all levels competed at the Midwestern and Pacific Coast Synchronized Skating Championships held in Wichita, Kansas! Of course our favorite part about the event is seeing so many gorgeous costumes and new trends on the ice. This year we saw a lot of ombres, some unique themes from edgy neon skeletons to beauty queens, and the ever-trending vibrant colors that pop on the ice.
Check out a few of the teams we were proud to have outfitted with their #LineUpLook below!
Special shout out to KrPhotogs Photography LLC for so many fantastic pics.
Another season has come to an end for North Dakota dance teams, culminating in the 2020 NDADD State Dance Competition at the end of January. The competition featured teams from around the state doing their best Pom, Jazz, Hip-Hop, and High Kick dances!
From Bismarck's trend-setting Pom unitards to Valley City's Olympic-themed Kick costumes, we're always inspired by the ideas North Dakota teams bring to us year after year! We were honored to outfit some of the teams at this year's competition, check out some highlights below.
Congrats on another great season, friends!
