Call Customer Service


Curtain Call Model Search

Curtain Call uses hundreds of models every year to showcase the products in our catalogs. If you have a dancer who is interested in modeling for us please fill out our online model search application. You may also print the form and mail the completed form and photos - see instructions below. 


Who We Need:

Both male and female dancers, ages 3-23. Models need to have a love of dance, a strong background in technique, and a sparkling personality. We select child models of all sizes, adult female models in ASM or AME sizes, and adult male models in sizes ASM-ALA.
Photo shoots take place during the week from January through May in Central PA. Models must be available to travel to Central PA at their own expense. We do compensate models for their time, but do not reimburse for travel expenses.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Can I email or fax the form?
A: You may complete our online application which allows you to submit photos electronically. No faxes will be accepted.
Q: I missed the deadline. Can I still submit my form?
A: Yes. Forms are accepted year-round, but if forms are in by the deadline, they will be considered for all photo shoot opportunities. Late-arriving forms will be considered for any remaining shoots after date of receipt.
Q: When do you notify models that they have been selected?
A: Selected models are notified via email between December and April. We select models for each photo shoot as it comes up in our calendar, and take the entire spring to select models for the various sections of our catalog.
Q: Is this a paid modeling job?
A: Yes, models are compensated for their time.
Q: Are models that live in your area given preference over out-of-state models?
A: No, we select models from everywhere in the country. Our models travel to Pennsylvania from as far away as the West Coast, and we welcome the chance to provide model opportunities to dancers nationwide.
Q: If I am not selected this year, does that mean I shouldn’t submit a form next year?
A: Because we have such a large pool of submissions each year (over 1,000), and there are a limited number of model slots available for each size range, we are often unable to book all of the talented dancers we receive in our mailbox. We invite everyone to continue to submit a new form each year!
Q: If I modeled in the catalog last year, do I need to resubmit my information again this year?
A: Yes. We do keep model forms on file for one year, but they are shredded after that time for security purposes. Also, as the measurements and photos will change from year to year, it is important to have the most current information on file.
Q: I noticed on the form that I must provide a PA Performance Permit. What is this, and how can I obtain one?
A: If a model has a PA Performance Permit at the time of submission, it should be submitted with the Model Information Form. When a selected model is contacted about an upcoming shoot, they will be provided with all necessary paperwork to complete an Application for a PA Performance Permit. This permit will be issued for each model, regardless of state of residence.
