COSTUMES 

All students perform in our annual Dance Recital at Union City Performing Arts Center and each class has a unique performance along with a specific costume. Students who take multiple classes have a costume for each class.  Tights and socks are not included with the costumes.  It is imperative that you understand what tights and socks are required for the show.  

Please use the following link which details requirements for TIGHTS, SOCKS, SHOES and HAIR STYLE for every class.  Click here: Costume Requirements

Please ensure that your child adheres to each of the criteria.

Costume Tips:

 ·         Arrive Ready.  Your child should arrive to the theater no later than one hour before the start of the show in their costume ready to go for their first number.  If your child is in more than one number of the show, it is your responsibility to ensure that they are changed into their next costume and their hair and makeup are ready for the next routine. 

 ·         Costume ChangesIf your child is in more than one number of the show, it is your responsibility to ensure that they are changed into their next costume and their hair and makeup are ready for the next routine.  Most children have their costume changes during intermission at which time you will have access to the dressing room area to assist them.  The dressing room area will be in the cafeteria.  In the event that your child has a quick costume change, (3 dances or less), then one of our staff members or volunteers will be available to help them with the changes.   The dressing room area for quick changes will be in the dressing rooms behind the stage.  If there are any questions or confusion, please confirm with Jennifer before the day of the show.

 ·         Label Everything.  Please make sure to have all costumes, shoes, hair/makeup and accessories labeled and ready to go.  It is important to put your child’s name in each costume as well as their shoes.  Label and mark everything so that there is no confusion in the dressing room. 

 ·         Makeup and Hair.  We do not provide makeup for the dancers and we do not prepare their hair.  Please make sure all ballet dancers have a proper, secured bun as per the attached instructions.
