*******************************************************************************
What does your dancer need to bring?
All dancers will need to have their hair in a well secured bun, or have short hair secured away from the face. A little makeup is suggested to show facial features under the stage lighting. Dancers will need clean tights without any holes and slippers. An “undertard” is recommended. I will contact Kevin about making these available for purchase.
A non-breakable water bottle is permitted; food is not allowed backstage. Dancers may NOT eat in their costumes!
***************************************************************************
We will be setting up a goodie table at each performance. Please consider bringing something to share with our audience. Remember to label with ingredients regarding allergens.
*******************************************
Parents, please do your best to have your child attend as many rehearsals as possible, but the most important one is dress rehearsal. If your child is sick, do not worry about missing an event, do whatever is needed to encourage them to get well so they can join us soon.
