A reminder: Please make sure your dancer has new tights for the shows coming up, as well as slippers, and hairpins, hair nets, and hair gel. Dressing up is a big part of performance fun, as well as a way to feel well prepared. Encourage your dancer to learn to be responsible for her dance gear and to prepare her hair herself. Male dancers will also want to check over their tights and slippers, replace as needed, and get some hair gel if their hair is not super short. Call Kevin at Threadbare Dancewear to order anything you need, and he will put it all together with the costumes for me to pick up. 822-7894. Most costumes will be ready to try on after Thanksgiving.
