A Night at the Museum 2017: Hair & Makeup by Class

Other Important Blogs to Visit (click links):    Recital Notes        Class Picture Times & Locations     Costume Descriptions & Pieces by Class


Stage Makeup for ALL Classes:

Optional:  foundation, eye liner, a light dusting of facial glitter, brow wax, highlighter, contour

Requested:  powder, eyeshadow (neutral, bronze & gold tones work best; avoid bright colors like pink & blue), mascara, blush, pigmented lip gloss or lipstick (pinks or reds)

*We do have additional hair supplies & makeup available for touch-ups if needed, but please come with makeup done! If you require assistance with makeup, we can schedule you time early to meet with someone at the rehearsal & recital. Please let us know early – this is not something we can have brought to us on rehearsal/recital day and make it go smoothly for your dancer. We can help best when everyone plans ahead and makes an appointment at the event. Thank you for your help!


Hair Instructions:

*Don’t ever stress about hair prep! If hair skills are not your forte, please let us know and we’ll help you make a plan to have it done early at rehearsal & recital. We will definitely need to know ahead of time so that we can arrange a plan for you to come early and who will help you – that is not something we can have brought to us on rehearsal/recital day and make it go smoothly for your dancer. Thanks for your help!
