Behind the Scenes of the First Dirtylicious® Dance Fitness Photoshoot

Hi! We're Chelsey Curtis and Erica Tanner. If you didn't know we're the founders of Dirtylicious® Dance Fitness, and we've been working behind the scenes for quite a while to bring Dirtylicious® to the masses.

SO many late nights of recording choreography, writing out the Dirtylicious® University instructor manual, while still raising two kiddos each and running our households.

But it all started to feel VERY real as soon as we planned our first photoshoot.

Capturing The Vision

Because Erica has been dancing her whole life, she knew the key to making this photoshoot look good was to have dancers come and do what they do best, dance. But how do you organize 40+ people to make it look like an actual class instead of just chaos?

The Shot List. [Cue the heavenly angel music]

This is where Chelsey's background and expertise of blogging and maximizing the very expensive hourly rate of photographers, videographers and venues came in handy. After compiling a detailed shot list and sending it off to the media people. Once we were all on the same page it was easy to get rolling and go off of the list.

Calling In ALL of Our Favors

Trying to pull off a professional photoshoot on a shoestring budget was quite the feat, so we both had to call in a TON of favors to make it happen. So THANK you to everyone who came to be in the shoot, to our photographer, our videographer, our venue and our husbands who supported us by watching the kiddos at home. We literally couldn't have done this without each of you!
