Yes, we prefer that all students (even our youngest dancers) wear some makeup for performances, as this is part of being “stage ready” and makes it a special event! It can be especially hard to see specific features and tell dancers apart on video (since they are all wearing the same thing) so we want to be able to see their beautiful faces! We do, of course, want them above all to still look like kids, and if this is something you don’t feel comfortable with for your dancer, we totally understand!
Hair can be worn however you would like, as long as it is secured back out of the face (unless you are a competitive/performance team member – then it needs to be worn as you normally do for stage).
As a reminder: Age 3-4 & 5-6 Classes (and CORE age 5-8 class) — pink ballet shoes & tan buckle tap shoes, Age 7+ Classes — pink ballet shoes, tan jazz shoes, black (slip on) tap shoes, Hip Hop — black “converse style” (does not have to be this brand) shoes with white soles, Tumble — barefoot. Competitive & Performance Teams – please ask the front desk if you are unsure of shoe styles.
*If you have a question about the shoes/style for your child’s class, please inquire with our office*
