Arrive with hair and stage makeup complete,

Required Items

REQUIRED ITEMS

TIGHTS 

 All tights and shoes are available for purchase on our Nimbly storefront. It's important that all dancers wear the exact same shade and brand of tights and shoes (except in cases where the required shade is skin-toned).

Our Storefront!

We recommend having two new pairs of tights in case one pair gets a snag.

PROPER UNDERGARMENTS FOR ALL STUDENTS

NUDE LEOTARD - Female Students

A nude leotard is worn under all costumes.

We do not have gender-separated dressing rooms and a nude leotard provides coverage and modesty for your student. If students only have one dance and arrive and leave in their costumes they will not need a nude leotard. 

 

COMPRESSION SHORTS - Male Students

Bike shorts/compression shorts must be worn under their costume and be kept on as they change.

All male dancers over the age of 8 should also be wearing a dance belt.

Tickets

Ticket Sales

Tickets for the recital will be available through TUTUTIX.  Visit their website Here­­ to get yours. Everyone 3 and older will need a ticket. Tickets will be available online now through June 7th. After that tickets must be purchased in person either at the front desk beginning May 15th or at the door. 

Tickets at the door will be $20 each and cash only. Dancers who are performing do not need tickets.

Volunteers

We need volunteers! We could never make these beautiful productions happen without the help of all of you! We need volunteers for many positions both before/after the show and during the show. Our largest need is parents to be backstage with dancers. Volunteers who are backstage will get to see their dancers from the side of the stage. Please let us know at the front desk if you'd like to volunteer. 

What to Pack

WHAT TO PACK FOR REHEARSAL AND RECITAL
Please ensure that your student’s name is on ALL of their belongings, especially their shoes!

All students should bring one bag with the following items:

Costume and all accessories

Tights (pack an extra pair)

Nude Leotard

Dance Shoes

Water in a no-spill bottle, preferably with a straw

Lipstick for touch ups (please instruct your children NOT to apply it themselves!)

Extra hairpins

Hairbrush

Hairspray

Snacks: no chocolate or chips, nothing sticky or greasy. Carrot sticks, grapes, string cheese,

turkey roll-ups, goldfish crackers, etc... all make great snacks.


WATER IS THE ONLY DRINK ALLOWED. NO EXCEPTIONS. NO CLEAR GATORADE. 

WATER FOUNTAINS MAY BE CLOSED.

Costumes

All dancers should have tried on their costumes. If you haven't please let your teacher know. Costumes will stay at the studio until the full run through. They will go home with their dancers after the full run through. You will be responsible for bringing their costumes to the dress rehearsal. Costumes will stay at the venue after dress rehearsal then come home with you after the show. If your dancer is not going to have a nude leotard and only has ONE dance they can take their costume home after dress rehearsal so they can wear it to the show the next day. 

Hair

HAIR

A tutorial can be found here. If you need assistance, please let the front desk know.

Hair should be parted in the middle, french braided on each side, and pulled back into a bun at the nape of the neck. The bun itself should be covered with an invisible hair net and secured with hair pins. Hairspray is a must!

If hair is too short for this style then it needs to be braided then held back using gel and bobby pins. Males should have their hair gelled and secured out of their faces.

Makeup

MAKEUP

 

All students will need stage makeup. Bright stage lighting washes out faces and makes them look dull.

We are not trying to make the students look older, just make their lovely faces visible to the audience!

 

Your child will need to wear:

 

Foundation

Powder

Blush

Contour

Neutral shade of eyeshadow

Black eyeliner- not too heavy

False Eyelashes

Medium Pink Lipstick

Please use a long-wearing lipstick, such as Maybelline Superstay.

The color should complement your child's skin tone. 

Think of rich rosy color, not fuchsia or hot pink.

No sparkles or glitter, no red lipstick, no vivid or bright eyeshadow.

Here is a video you can watch for a little help, if needed:

T-Shirts

RECITAL T-SHIRTS

All dancers will receive a recital t-shirt. If you or your family would like to purchase shirts, see the front desk to fill out the order form and pay. No orders will be accepted after May 25th. T-shirts will be available for pick-up at dress rehearsal.
