“Show Ready”

“Show Ready” is the phrase we use to indicate dancers have their hair and makeup done and are in costume or ready to be in costume quickly.

For dancers in one class:
Arrive for shows in costume with sweatpants/sweatshirt over top.

For dancers in multiple classes:
Arrive for shows in skin tone base (Leotard & tights) with sweatpants/sweatshirt over top with costumes in a garment bag. 


Costumes will be sent home with Students in May.

They will be packaged in a garment bag with your dancer’s name on it and a list of the costumes and accessories for each of their classes.

Students should not play in their costumes before the show. Please keep them hung in a closet and safe until June 8th.

We recommend that dancers in multiple classes have a skin tone leotard to wear under their costumes. This will help make sure dancers are comfortable changing in the dressing room.

Generally, tights serve in place of underwear when wearing a costume. Dancers who are not comfortable going without underwear or who wish to wear a bra should find those items in a color that is as close as possible to their skin tone.


Dancers are required to wear makeup for dress rehearsal and performance. This helps to keep their features discernible on the stage.

Dancers should wear –
Brown Smokey Eye Shadow
Red Lipstick

Dancers in Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Dance Explorers, & Creative Dance should wear their hair in a ballet bun at the crown of the head for the showcase.

Dancers in Hip Hop & Contemporary should wear their hair in a low pony tail.

If your costume has a hair piece, please place it to the right of the bun.
