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!
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.

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!

As we were putting together our annual dance costume trends report, we noticed one major theme: lace is out and mesh is in! 5 of our top 14 trends included some variation of mesh, each a unique twist on the most popular fabric of the season. Here are our top 3 favorites!
