    For anyone who grew up studying ballet or practicing jazz runs across a mirror-lined studio, you're familiar with the wonderful awkwardness of the dance-school photo. If not, well, know that these photos will make you squirm even more than your regular school pictures — your hands oddly placed on your hips, the strange pyramids you create with your classmates, the gazing off into the distance wistfully.
