In an effort to keep costs low, there will be a flat 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 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.
Our recital program will contain ads from local businesses, good luck notes to individual dancers, and photos. Ad space will be available for purchase in April. Prices will be for a business-card sized ad, for a quarter-page ad, $100 for a half-page ad, for a full-page ad, and $350 for the inside front or back cover, in full color. This is a great way to easly advertise to hundreds of people!
Dancer “Shout Outs!” Make an advertisement just for your dancer! Wish them good luck, break a leg or include a photo! This will be a great keepsake for you and your family.
