KATIE BINGAMAN PHOTOGRAPHY will be in the studio to photograph our dancers. These are optional individual pictures, & a beautiful lasting memory.
The purpose of stage make-up is to make dancers more visible from a distance. The stage lights can wash out faces. As we are working with children, we strive for simple, natural make up on all.
Dancers must use the designated studio colors for lipstick, blush, & eye shadow. These are available through the studio at a nominal price.
Dancers under 12 may wear mascara if tolerated. All older dancer must wear it.
No eye liner on dancers under 12 as it actually makes their eyes look smaller. Older dancers should use it in a natural line- no "wings".
Eye shadow is applied on the lid only for all.
Foundation is usually not necessary but may be worn by older dancers only.
If your child has a make up allergy, be sure to let your Dance Mom know.
It takes a lot of make up for it to be visible. Dressers will touch up as needed.
Make up on male dancers is optional.
Hair is to be worn in a tight bun- see video above- with all fly aways slicked back & no bangs.
If your group needs a different hairstyle, your Dance Mom will let you know.
No jewelry, fancy barrettes or any other accessories are permitted unless they are part of your costume.
This included pierced earrings. Leave your jewelry at home. We are not responsible for lost or missing items.
No nail polish. Dressers will remove this.
You will receive new tights or socks with your costume.
You will wear these for Picture Day & Dress Rehearsal but do not use them for class until after the show.
Emergancy tights are available during the show.
For the sake of modesty, all dancers in 2 or more dances, must wear a nude body liner under their costumes.
Underpants may NOT be worn under any costume worn with tights.
If you do not wear tights with your costume, please find the tiniest panties you can (or don't wear any) and make sure they don't stick out!
If they show, they will need to come off. Most dancers do not wear underpants!
If you have questions about any of the above, check with you Dance Mom, she will help you.
We are known for the professional quality of our shows.
Uniformity, even down to lipstick color, is an important part of this.
We want to present our dancers in the best light possible! They have worked hard & deserve our BEST!
Do NOT wear your costume or dance shoes to or from the show,
change in the dressing area only.
We do not want to see dancers getting in or out of cars with costumes on. Not only is this extremely unprofessional
but costumes will get wrinkled & dirty this way.
DO put on your tights & liner at home.
When transporting your costumes, cover them with a garment bag or a clean trash bag with your name on it.
Make sure that each costume, shoe, headpiece, etc., has your name on it. Your costumes must be on a hangers & you need a small suitcase or bag (ziplocks are great) for your shoes & accessories.
You should also have your own make up & hair supplies. It is helpful to use a laundry basket to drop your costumes & accessories as you take them off. You can sort them out later.
Keep the dressing area neat. Keep all your things together in one place. Do not touch anyone else's costumes or belongings. Be sure to clean up your space at the end of each performance.
