COSTUMES, MAKEUP, AND HAIR

Please read the following information carefully and check the specifications for each dance class. Students must arrive on Saturday at least 15 minutes before each show. They are required to bring all parts of their costumes and manage time to do their makeup and hair. Since the dressing rooms get full, we suggest doing hair and makeup prior to arrival. 

Buy Dance Attire

All recital costumes should have come home and should be properly labeled. LABEL ALL COSTUME PARTS AND SHOES! Remember although the quality of the costume is good, they are not always a perfect fit.  Please understand that some alterations may need to be made after receiving your costume.  If you need additional alterations please make arrangements.  Please make sure all straps are sewn to avoid embarrassing stage mishaps!  The studio does not cover the alteration fees. Please make sure you understand hair, make-up and costume particulars, so that your child is not left out! 


Creative Movement and PreDance

Some classes will be given white anklets and additional hair accessories.  You will receive all additional costume items at dress rehearsal, please don’t lose them as we do not provide extras!  

Hair

High ponytail, curled or electric rollers or if you have natural curly hair, we just don’t want long tangled ponytails.

Makeup

Dancers should wear a rose colored blush and raspberry colored lipstick.
