-Dancers in ballet routines will need PINK tights and dancers in jazz or tap dances will need NUDE tights. Dancers in acro routines can wear bare legs or NUDE stirrup tights.


Hair and Make-Up

All-female students are requested to wear light stage make-up: lipstick, blush, eye shadow (earth tones preferred), and mascara.

Hair should be in a low centre parted bun with no bangs. You can see how to accomplish this by watching the following videos, or by stopping by the desk for a demo with Miss Rosemary.

a link to how to apply stage make-up can be found here:

What if my child is 2-3 years old???

All Pre-School Classes (Pre-School Ballet, Pre-School Jazz, and Pre-School  Acro) dancers will perform at our In-House Performance at The Dance Class on Saturday, June 8th. Therefore your child is NOT INVOLVED in the recital and there is no need to read the remainder of this email. You will be receiving a separate package with information about your Open House shortly. We would love to see some of our pre-school dancers in the audience,  so keep an eye on when tickets go on sale. Both performances will sell out.
