Make sure your child’s name is written inside all shoes, tights and costumes. Take time to carefully pack all costume pieces and accessories. Please pack a spare pair of tights in case your dancer gets a runner. Also, be sure to clean all dance shoes.
All tie tap shoes should have laces replaced with elastic.
All dancers must have hair pulled back off their face and secured in a bun. Those with shorter hair should wet, gel, then blow dry to secure any pieces of hair from falling in their face.
It is necessary to apply make-up even to the youngest dancers. The stage lighting is so bright that it washes out their natural color. Please use:
- Beige, Brown and Pink shadows on eyelids.
- Blush on cheeks (Rosie)
- Red lipstick regardless of costume color (red is most effective under lights)
- Mascara & Eyeliner (except on the very little dancers).
No Jewelry is to be worn. Clear Nail polish only
Dancers interested in watching the show will be able to sit in the Dancers section of the theatre. Dancers are NOT permitted in the audience in costume. Please bring something such as a large shirt or robe to cover the costume when your child is in the audience.
Remember, no underwear is to be worn under tights.
ALL Shoes should be cleaned for stage.
BALLET Shoes: Be sure that all strings are tucked inside the shoes.
TAP: Must be secured with elastic.
