GENERAL HAIR/MAKEUP NOTES: Please follow the hair instructions above. I want all the dancers to look exactly the same and having the same hair styles gives a more polished look. To help hair stay in place, use LOTS of HAIR GEL, HAIR SPRAY & BOBBY PINS!! If your dancers hair is a shorter length, please try to pull it straight back as best you can and secure it. If the student has bangs, please pull them back off of face. We recommend the dancers wear powder, eyeshadow, mascara, blush and a red shade of lipstick at minimum. You can also use foundation, eyeliner, false eyelashes, glitter, etc. Feel free to ask Lauren if you have any questions.

    accessories, and hair/make-up done (except for DRESS REHEARSAL)! DO NOT ARRIVE OR ENTER THE AUDITORIUM IN YOUR COSTUME ON RECITAL NIGHT. There will be a backstage area for your child to change and get ready for their performance.

BACKSTAGE MOMS
We ask that two moms volunteer from each Creative Movement and Kinder Class – one Mom from each Level 1, 2, 3 & 4 class - to stay with the dancers during the recital. A friend or family member who is 18 years or older can also be a Backstage Mom. For dancers who are in more than 2 dances, it may be helpful to have an assistant backstage (just for them) to help with quick costume changes. For the younger dancers, it's comforting to have a consistent parental / adult presence during the event. For the studio, it's help that we couldn't do without!! As a Backstage Mom, you will not have to pay for a ticket for the recital. You will be able to watch your child's performance in the audience (we'll have a special Backstage Mom's seating area), and then will stay with the class backstage for the rest of the recital. If you want to re enter the auditorium you must have a ticket at that time! We hate to exclude the Dads, but we think it's best to keep it "just girls" for reasons such as costume changes, make-up, etc.

 

GENERAL RECITAL RULES

  • No flash photography or video taping will be allowed at the recital.
  • Please turn off all cellular phones & beepers during the performance.
  • Everyone must have a ticket (with the exception of "Backstage Moms" and infants that will be sitting on an adult's lap). Anyone without a ticket will not be permitted to enter.

 

REHEARSING AT HOME
The following will lead to a LESS STRESSFUL & MORE ENJOYABLE recital for your child!

  • If your dancer would like a copy of their recital music, please provide Lauren with a blank CD with students name and class time written on it.
  • It's also very helpful for students to have a video recording of their dance routine. Instructors do not mind parents coming into the studio to record their child's routine. We strongly encourage that students do "routine run throughs" at home a few times a week.
