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. DON'T FORGET TO LABEL COSTUMES AND SHOES!

Buy Dance Attire

Dancers will take home their costumes in May. 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!
