- Students should not be allowed to wear their costumes until the performances, except for pictures. We cannot replace costumes or tights that have been damaged. Please make sure tap shoes have elastic instead of laces.
- Performers should wear light eye shadow, blush, and lipstick so as not to appear “faceless” under the bright stage lights. Makeup should be worn for pictures, dress rehearsals, and the performances. Please, no body or hair glitter. For additional suggestions/help please watch the video how-to above.
- At Showcase we suggest you bring your dancer with hair/makeup done and costumes in hand. Arrive no later than 30-min prior to your event. We will provide a changing room in the lower level of the venue for you to help your dancer get ready. There will be a separate room for the Dad’s to use for father daughter changes.
- Use the Program order to determine when your dancer will perform. They need to be downstairs in our holding area FIVE ROUTINES prior to their own. If your dancer is performing in the first 5-routines of the event please bring them down before the start of our Show. The holding area will be a small arrangement of chairs, viewable & located on the audience RIGHT of the stage. The dancers will sit here with their teacher or assistant until it’s time to line up and perform.
- Upon the conclusion of their routine, they performers will assemble on the audience LEFT holding area. Parents will simply come down and collect your child, then take them back up to watch the show with your family. If you have a 2nd routine (example father daughter), please follow these same steps for changing and have your dancer back to our holding area 5-routines prior to their second dance.
- FAST CHANGES may utilize the “red room” which is just off stage left. This area is also designated for our competition students dressing space and will be quite full. However, for fast changes it’s the best choice.
- Please use performance etiquette. Minimize conversations and stay seated while there are routines on stage. Make any entrances and exits from your seats BETWEEN routines.
- Students will sit with their parents before and after their individual performances.
