Mandatory Show Dress Rehearsal & Show Order
Every dancer participating in both the Saturday June 13 and Sunday June 14 recitals will have their recital pictures taken June 1-6, 2015 during their regularly scheduled class time. Dancers will have their pictures taken as well as an in-studio dress rehearsal.
All dancers will take a class photo that will be displayed in the studio for the upcoming year. This is of no cost to parents. For an extra fee, individual portrait packages are available, but will NOT be taken unless requested. At the end of May, picture order forms will be disbursed at the studio. If you would like your dancer to be photographed alone, please complete the picture order form and bring it to their class(es) on June 1-6. Pictures will be mailed directly to your home 4-6 weeks after the show.Please understand if your dancer is late or absent they might miss their photo opportunity.

Hairstyle for ALL Dancers
- All dancers should arrive in full costume with hair and makeup complete for the in-studio dress rehearsal/picture day the week of June 1-6, as well as the recitals on June 13 and 14. Hollywood Stars who are having their dress rehearsal on Friday, June 12 will need their full costume including tights and shoes, however hair and makeup is not required. Dancers are asked to wear their hair in a ponytail for the onstage dress rehearsal.
- ALL DANCERS should wear their hair in a secure bun in the middle of the back of the head. Bobby pins, hair spray, gel, and hairnets are essential to make sure buns do not fall out while they are dancing. If your hair is too short to fit into a bun, please wear it half up, half down. Hair should be very neat and tidy. Bangs should be curled and sprayed, or pulled back into the bun with hair clips if they hang into the dancer’s eyes.
Impact Bun Kit
Once again this year, the studio will be offering an optional hair kit for sale in the main office; get them while supplies last. The kit will include 1 hair donut with directions on how to make a perfect bun, a hairnet and 12 bobby pins. This is a one stop shop for all your recital hair needs.
- All dancers should arrive in full costume with hair and makeup complete for the in-studio dress rehearsal/picture day the week of June 1-6, as well as the at the recitals on June 13 and 14. Hollywood Stars who are having their dress rehearsal on Friday, June 12 will need their full costume including tights and shoes, however hair and makeup is not required. Dancers are asked to wear their hair in a ponytail for the onstage dress rehearsal.
- We recommend all dancers, even the little ones, to wear some makeup on show day to avoid appearing washed out onstage. This is, however, totally optional. If you do decide to apply makeup here are our recommendations: black mascara and a plum-like purple eye shadow, pretty pink blush and a red lip looks great onstage. Please no fuchsia or very bright red lipstick. Older dancers’ makeup should be applied quite heavy for stage. Remember, the lights are very bright and without makeup, faces become washed out from afar.
Costume Delivery & Proper Tights and Shoes
Recital costumes will be coming home in May. The studio policy is to hold all costumes until the family balance is current. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
Proper Tights & Shoes
In order for each class to look polished and professional onstage come recital day, we ask that parents purchase the correct color and style of shoes, tights, and or socks to be paired with the dancer’s recital costumes. Please find your dancer’s class(es) listed below and provide the proper shoes and tights ready for dress rehearsal day. All tights and dance shoes may be purchased at Impact Dance Studio.
Dance tights are required for the recital; please DO NOT purchase pantyhose. The proper brand and colors are available at Impact Dance Studio.
Please be sure you have the correct style and color of shoes for your child’s dance. No Ballet shoes will be allowed for Jazz classes, etc. The brand is not particularly important. The proper colored shoes are available at Impact Dance Studio.
