Each class needs specific accessories (tights/shoes) a list of the items that are needed for each class can be found on the last page of this packet and in the costume book at the front desk. We will be having a Pop Up Shop at the studio to purchase all your recital needs!  Please make sure that you have the correct color/style of tights and shoes.  Items may also be purchased at Dee’s Dancewear, located on 83rd Ave. & Bell (behind Discount Tire).  Please make sure that you have your accessories before dress rehearsal!  All tights need to be New and Clean for the recital!!

Hair Styles for Recital and Dress Rehearsal
All Company Dancers- FULL PERFORMANCE Hair and Make-up!!!

All Combo Classes, All Jazz Classes, All Hip Hop Classes, All Tap Classes- Hair needs to be in a curled/curly ponytail! Make sure that all hair is pulled and sprayed back. If your child’s hair is not long enough for a ponytail- half-up and curly.  (Make sure that your ponytail holder and bobby pins are the same color as your hair!)

All Ballet only Classes (not combo)- Hair needs to be in a tight, secured, bun with no fly-aways.
***All hair accessories need to be securely bobby pinned in hair***


Ages 2 ½- 5: Brown/Tan Natural eye shadow, Mascara (I always recommend the CLEAR mascara just in case they rub their eyes, we don’t have a mess!!) pink blush, and red lipstick. (I would put their lip stick into a clear baggy with their name on it to send back stage to have the backstage mom apply right before they perform!)

Ages 6-teens:Brown/Tan Natural eye shadow, black mascara, black eyeliner if possible, pink blush, and red lipstick. 
Make sure that all make-up is A LOT heavier than what you would usually wear!!

Please NO video taping or photography during the Recital or Concert.  This is for the safety of the Dancers!! You may video tape your child during Dress Rehearsal. DVDs of either show may be purchased at Recital for $50.

Recital Pictures/Dress Rehearsal Instructions:

Dress Rehearsal and Pictures: Date and Location- Saturday, June 16th at L.A. Dance.  Dress rehearsal will begin at 8:30am and begin with our Combo classes.  The dancers will begin with group and individual pictures and then move into the large room that is set up like the stage.  The dancers will perform their dance for you.  As soon as they have finished they may leave.  Dress Rehearsal runs approx 45mins to 1 hour per class.  Please be looking for the dress rehearsal schedule with your dancers times. 

Please note that Dress Rehearsal is the weekend prior to the show.  We begin at 8am with our younger dancers/classes.  An exact schedule will be sent out closer to the scheduled date.

We run an organized and timely Dress Rehearsal; your help with the process will guarantee a professional production. Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled picture time. We will not be able to wait for late students and still keep to our schedule.

Dancers are required to arrive 30 minutes prior to your recital show time.  There will be L.A. Dance signs directing “Dancers” which way to go. Please make sure that you sign your child in! Your child must be signed-out by the same person when leaving for security purposes!  Backstage Mom: These moms will stay with dancers throughout the show. A sign-up sheet is at the front desk for moms interested in being the designated Backstage Mom.  Backstage, there will be a TV/VCR playing Disney movies. We also have coloring books, games, etc. for the dancers to use. All dancers will remain backstage during the ENTIRE show. For safety reasons, the backstage doors will be locked. NO ONE will be allowed to leave early from backstage. All dancers will participate in the Finale at the end of the show. At the conclusion of the performance, please send ONE adult to sign your child out. Please be patient with this process, and remember the lines will go faster if you send only ONE parent to pick up your dancer. If your child is 9 or older (students in the ages 9-11 and teen classes), you may exit the auditorium and wait for them in the cafeteria. Before the recital, be sure that you have talked with your child regarding where you will meet her when the show is finished. PLEASE have your child use the restroom prior to dropping them off in dressing rooms!! Thank you!
