Colorado Springs Dance Photographer



If you're looking for a live dance performance photographer or a dance portrait photographer, you have come to the right place!

Hi, I'm Melanie Dexter and I'm a Colorado Springs dance photographer. I am a former professional ballet dancer and have over 27 years of experience in the world of dance. Photographing dancers is one of my passions; it feeds my creative soul and pretty much just makes me giddy with glee. If you have a dance related photography need, please contact me today for a custom quote.

Dance Performance Photography

I offer photography coverage of live dance performances. I prefer to photograph dancers during dress rehearsals when I can move freely throughout the theater, but I also photograph performances that are open to the public. I have worked with multiple dance companies and groups in Colorado Springs, including Ormao Dance Company, Colorado College Department of Dance, Pikes Peak Community College Department of Dance, Ballet Emmanuel, and The PEAK School of Dance.

Dance Portrait Photography

TMDexter Photography also offers dance portrait sessions for dance companies looking for marketing materials for upcoming performances and for dancers in need of audition shots. I partner with a local dance studio to offer in-studio dance portraits in addition to offering sessions outside. I am happy to work with local dance companies to create images for advertising both in print and online. Many of my dance images have been published in local newspapers and in online publications.
