HAIR AND MAKE UP

All female School of Dance pupils are to have their hair as follows for all dances within the show: Ballet Donut Bun you can see a tutorial here. Use lots of hairspray, we want the hair slicked and sleek with no fringes or wispy bits at all please. 

The only exceptions to this are girls with very short hair - in these instances any fringe must be extremely neatly clipped back.  If you are struggling with hair please let us know ahead of time and we will pair you with someone to help.

Make Up - foundation, red lipstick, blue eyeshadow, blusher (plus black mascara and eyeliner for older pupils) is encouraged for all female pupils (a little foundation for boys is also a good idea).  Show lighting tends to make you look washed out so we go heavy on the make up - it's also a fun part of the experience.  However, if your child does not want to/you don't want your child to wear make up that is absolutely fine.

CLOTHES FOR BACKSTAGE

We encourage you bring a zip through hoodie to wear backstage

ALL CLOTHES AND COSTUME MUST BE LABELLED WITH YOUR CHILDS NAME!!
