Updates on the Face of Dance - Inside Out Project

The Face of Dance - Inside Out Project
(May 1st update)

We're thrilled with the response to the Face of Dance project!  Thank you to everyone who has signed up and helped us spread the word!  

As you read in our previous post, the Face of Dance is open to everyone who works in the dance field in one capacity or another.  Because of people's busy schedules, we've set things up to help as many people as possible participate.

We can accommodate groups, so feel free to bring as many people as you like.  We've added an additional times and have more options available.  See below.  There have also been some questions, which we'll answer here.


Inside Out New York in Times Square
As you can see, JR and his team are already making a large imprint on Times Square and other parts of the city with Inside Out New York.  As usual, people flock to participate, and it's a wonderful sight to see.  

The Inside Out Photo Booth Truck in Times Square 
The Inside Out Project will have their photo booth truck set up at Times Square.  Here's a photo of the truck (above), so you can spot it easily.  The truck will either be parked on the corner of 47th/Broadway, or between 45th-47th Streets and Broadway, at Duffy Square, as seen above.  Just look around the TKTS ticket booth area, and you should be able to spot the photo booth truck easily.  

Learn How You can Participate in the Face of Dance Inside Out Project

Option #1 Photo Booth Truck in Times Square

Face of Dance group portraits

  • Guaranteed 5-10 minute wait to have your photo taken for the Face of Dance Inside Out Project.
  • Our group will gather next to the photo booth truck at these times, so you don't have to go to the end of the line.  
  • You are allowed to bring groups of people to help us represent DANCE in New York City.   
  • Dawn Paap is organizing our Face of Dance Group, so look for her when you arrive so she can collect everyone's name and email for follow up.  
  • NEW DATES: 
    • Sunday, May 5th, 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    • Wednesday, May 8th, 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm 
Individual Portraits

  • Go to the photo booth truck in Times Square on you own, and we can schedule a time to pick up your portrait to include it in the Face of Dance Inside Out Project.
  • If you go on your own, you will need to go to the end of the line.  Wait time can extend to 2-3 hours.  Getting there when they open may reduce this wait time significantly.

Answers to Questions

Should you send us photos?

No. We'll be taking all of the portraits for you, so we we're not seeking photos to be sent to us at this time.  If that changes at all, we'll let you know. Besides, it's much more fun for you to come out and play!  

What's the news on displaying the Face of Dance portraits?

We've had MANY offers to portray the portraits at different locations, which is fabulous!  We couldn't be more exited!  Because we'll be taking hundreds of portraits during these three events, we will need to organize all of the information and photos before we discuss placement options, as different venues can display them in different ways.

Does everyone need to register before hand?

No, but it would help us out if you did.  If you're bringing a group, please email Dawn at thefaceofdance@gmail.com to let her know how many people to expect if you're bringing a group to the photo booth truck in Times Square.  If you haven't had a chance to answer our brief questionnaire before you have your portrait taken, we'll email that to you later.  Dawn will take down each person's name and email at the photo booth truck to follow up with participants as we move through the next phases of the project.
