Releasing costumes is ALWAYS an exciting time. The students get excited about their progress in class, their performance and how hard they work and how great they will look on stage. We are doing this EARLIER this year, so we can get back to normal class time; teaching the discipline and skills necessary for a safe and fun dance class!
SOME COSTUME TIPS:
Complete this tips IMMEDIATELY, so that you are not overwhelmed later by the tasks necessary to get ready for show day.
Label each costume on the tag with your students full name.
Try on each costume and check for holes, missing pieces (falling pieces can be easily re-attached with a hot glue gun) or the need to contact a seamstress to adjust straps. Damaged costumes must be returned for a replacement ASAP, they cannot be replaced after February 28th. Minor alterations are the responsibility of the family.
Remove your tights from the packaging and try them on. Replace them into Quart-Size Zip Lock Bags with your name on the bag and in the tights. THESE ARE NOT TO BE WORN IN CLASS BUT IN PERFORMANCE ONLY. You can use them in class AFTER the show.
Remove your hair-pieces and accessories from packaging and replace them into sandwich zip bags with your name on them.
Ensure you have the proper undergarments:
We recommend that students under age 10 that have multiple classes purchase a Nude Leotard to make changing backstage quick and modest. Purchase one from our Recital Store HERE
We recommend that students in multiple classes LAYER tights for easy changes. STIRRUP tights (go over the arch of the foot) are for Modern and Acro. CONVERTIBLE tights (go over the whole foot with a little hole) are for Tap and Jazz and Combo Classes. IE: Wear stirrup tights for Acro UNDER your Convertible tights for Jazz so you can just peel them off!
Tights are a dancers underwear. Like “long-underwear” Dancers should not wear panties underneath of their tights with their costumes. This reduces bulky and unsightly lines.
