Puttin' on the Hits
Show #1 – 11:00 AM Show #2 – 2:00 PM Show #3 – 5:00 PM
We have enlisted the help of many of our studio parents as well as alumni and DIDC staff who will attend a backstage meeting to ensure backstage is organized and safe for the entire event. Recital staff and volunteers can be identified by their studio lanyard/name badges.
Children will have the opportunity to watch the show via closed circuit TV if the video company can get it to work depending on location. In addition we will provide simple snacks, coloring books, and games for after they dance.
Contact the studio office for information regarding opportunities for recital volunteers. We are currently looking for dressing room chaperons and front-of-the-house ushers for all three shows!
For the safety and security of all of our dancers YES, DANCERS MUST REMAIN BACKSTAGE FOR THE ENTIRE SHOW! Out of fairness to ALL of the dancers and parents committing to recital, please do not request for your child to be let out early as we will not allow it.
Light makeup is recommended – mauve lipstick, pale pink eye-shadow, and blush, high on the cheekbones. The strong stage lights wash out faces without makeup.
All hair should be pulled back off of the face into a bun. The secret to a perfect bun is a hairnet – available at many pharmacies, such as CVS or Walgreens. They come in an envelope of three in specific colors. Blondes should get white, brunettes should get brown or dark brown and black hair should get black. Use bobby-pins to secure shorter hair pieces and again, be sure to purchase the correct color to match your dancer’s hair color. *Note: gel can also be used to pull shorter hair off of the face. All bangs must be pulled back off the face. They cast a shadow over the eyes when on stage. All hair should be sprayed with hairspray to keep it in place during the performance. We ask this so that we (and you) may see your child’s beautiful eyes. All hair accessories should be bobby-pinned in securely.
