Dance MODEL:

Someone who exists in a state of creation.

Model Team Application Deadline








Michell Santelik Dance Model Team

For the love of art 

Dance Models will learn from  Master photographer, Michell Santelik,  how to Find the Light and portray her artistic vision on set.  

The Art of Creation is more than just taking a picture………Location, Lighting, Storyboards,  Photography Crew, Make-up artists, Professional Hair Stylists, Mixed Media Artist, Wardrobe Seamstress, Technical Dance Director, and Film Makers are all a part of being “On Set”…

Learning to work with industry professionals while creating artwork for Michell Santelik Photography, its partners, and Portrait Masters image submissions is more than a typical photoshoot….it’s an education.



Seeing is Believing

The 2021/22 Dance MODEL TEAM started their model year with a BIG suprise!


We welcomed America’s Next Top Model Winner Jaslene Gonzalez to our studio and had the On Set with Jaslene experience!

Jaslene spoke with the models about empowerment, sisterhood, the truths of the Modeling industry, and so much more!

To finish the weekend, we parterned with Ella Jayms boutique of Valparaiso, IN, who along side Jaslene, styled our Model photoshoot beautifully.

Cheers and Thank you to:

Jaslene Gonzalez, Ella Jayms Boutique, Vanis Salon CP Hair Styling, and Makeup artists Livy Santaquilani & Delaney Starcivich.





   Dance MODEL TEAM 2020/21  Magazine

Check out our Dance MODEL TEAM magazine! It is filled with images our team created through out their model year.

We began with our Clay  photoshoot which was challenging yet very fun.  

In September the Models wore Flower Crowns and Gowns for a more lovely look.

Solo sessions brought their inner fashionista to the forefront. The Models were encouraged to style thier photoshoot with looks that represented their personality. They all did amazing; earning Portrait Master Merits and being showcased by Vanis Salon is something to be proud of!

The Model team year would not have been complete without a Commercial!  The team arrived at the Historic Crown Point Courthouse in style; escalade limousine thanks to Elite transportation CP!  We created beautiful looks while the models danced wearing Ice Crowns! We had an amazing day courtsey of The Grand and great filming by LakeShore4Media.

Watch the full length commercial, seeing is believing.

Cheers to the 2020/21 Dance Models!    Olivia   Madison  Elise  Madelyn
