Picture Week:

April 8th-11th – We will not have regular classes, only pictures.

Please arrive on time, ready, with hair and make-up applied, that way we can keep things moving as quickly as possible. Times are listed below showing when the dancers should be ready for their pictures. Pay attention to the times as there may be a 15-30 minute difference to the regular class time.

Upon arrival please wait in the lobby until your child is called to go back. We will have someone in the lobby with a list to check off names. Please make sure your child stays in the lobby as there will not be time or staff to track you down.  The plan is to have one group in the room for their picture, then have the next group lined up and ready to go!

Due to limited space and time, parents will not be able to be in the room with their child while pictures are made. You will be given a proof of any individual pictures your child takes so that you can order. There will not be a proof of the group picture. Staff will be available onsite to assist with all picture orders. Payment due upon order.

Listed below hair and makeup section are the estimated times.

 

Costumes, Hair, and Makeup

For combination costumes, place all parts of the costume with shoes in a clear zip lock bag with your child’s name on it. Leave the bag in the picture room, so it will ready for the next picture.

Accessories: Please bring all accessories that come with the Costume in a bag we will take care of them and make sure they are put on correctly. This way you don’t have to worry if they are correct, we will take care of that for you!

Shoes: Please bring in all shoes when you come in the room for Combo Costumes. We will go in order of their classes on how it listed below. You can have their first pair of shoes on. (Make sure name is on all shoes)

Hair: Please watch this tutorial on Twisted ponytail.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBvZumq4s8M

This hairstyle is for all classes except for Discovery and boys.  You will part the hair over the heart on the left side. Use hair ties that blend with your hair color. Spray all lose hairs down. If you have bangs make sure to pin them back. If you cannot do ponytail due to length, you can do a half up and half down. If too short for either, just be sure it’s out of your face.

Discovery Class Hair: Pull hair out of the face the best you can with half up half down or low pony Tail.

Make up: 

  • Foundation that matches your skin.
  • Eye shadow – use natural colors tan and browns look great, nothing bold, earth tone colors work best.
  • Use black eye liner on top and bottom and black mascara.
  • Lip stick mauve or roses color looks great. A great lip options is Cover Girl outlast all day lips- Wine to five
