Expression Dance Studio presents our 8th annual recital; "City Lights", on Saturday, June 17th at Lyons Township High School North Campus/Reber Center, 100 S Brainard Ave., La Grange, Il 60525.. There will be 3 performances - at 12:00 PM, 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM. The class schedule is color coded to indicate which recital each class is in.
In an effort to keep costs low, there will be a flat $60 per costume, per class fee. The costume fee is applied to the January tuition bill. Costumes will go home with the dancers at the beginning of June. Shoes and tights will need to be purchased to match the costume. This purchase will be separate from the costume fee.
All dancers, both company and recreational, will be required to purchase a $15 recital t-shirt. They will be wearing these at the end of the show for bows. The studio and the “City Lights” logo will be on the front, and the back will have EVERY dancer and teachers’ name on it. These t-shirts will be worn during the final dance bow performance. All dancers will be participating in this performance! These t-shirts are great keepsakes to remember the show. Recital t-shirts will be on the January bill.
All of the dancers* will have the same hairstyle. We will be parting the hair down the middle and keeping it in a low bun at the small of the neck. The staff will be going over the hair in all of the classes when it is closer to recital time.
You will need:
Hairspray or gel
Comb and brush
Hair donut (not required but can make it easier to do hair)
Hair net and bobby pins
*Express Start classes may have any hairstyle they choose as long as it is pulled off of the dancer’s face.
All of the dancers will need to wear make-up to prevent their face from appearing washed out on stage. Base foundation, eye shadow (browns, purples, blue, darker colors), eyeliner to outline the top line, blush and lipstick will be required. Express Start dancers will simply need blush, lip gloss and mascara if so desired.
