Shoe and Tights List: Below you will find the link to our shoe and tight list for this year’s recital. Please make sure your child has the correct style of shoes that they will need, as well as the correct color shoes and tights. You will be able to purchase all of these items at Step Up in Richboro. We have been working with them personally, and the staff over there has this list as well. Check back for the 2019 Shoe and Tight List.
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. Below you will find a list of all of the hair and makeup essentials we require for your dancer. We have provided a list for you to print and take to the store with you of great stage makeup, all of these can be found at your local CVS or Target. TDA Caboodle Checklist
