- Dress Rehearsal Schedule & Show Orders
Dress Rehearsals (Saturday “Candy Land” Shows – Pre-school Dancers)
**There is NO onstage dress rehearsal for the Saturday, June 10 “Candy Land” shows. During the week of June 1-8, an in-studio dress rehearsal will be held during their regularly scheduled class time. Dancers are to arrive in full costume, hair, and makeup.
Mandatory Dress Rehearsals (Sunday “1987: 30 Years of Impact” Shows – 1st Grade and Up Dancers)
In order to participate in the recital, all dancers must attend the mandatory dress rehearsal on Friday, June 9, 2017 at Hinsdale Central High School. Dancers should head directly to the auditorium upon arrival for dress rehearsal. Dress rehearsal is exactly like the real thing, this means costumes, tights, shoes, hair, makeup and lights! We have to pretend this rehearsal is exactly like the real show if we want to get the best results come recital day. The dancers only have this one last practice before the big day, so please attend to help the children feel as prepared as possible.
Parents are asked to stay for dress rehearsal and supervise their young children. Dancer supervision will only be provided on the actual recital day. On show days, parents are asked to provide no mess table activities and games to occupy the dancers while they are awaiting their turn onstage.

- Tight & Shoe Requirements
Recital costumes will be coming home during the end of May. The studio policy is to hold all costumes until the family balance is current. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Every costume requires a particular color and type of shoes, tights, and/ or socks. Please see the Costume Accessories document to find the proper leg and footwear needed for your dancer. All tights and dance shoes may be purchased at Impact Dance Studio.

- Hair & Makeup Requirements
Hair – 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.
Makeup – All dancers, even the little Pre-Dancers, need to wear makeup. Black mascara and a plum-like purple eye shadow. Cheeks should be a true pretty pink with a red lip. 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.
Recital Hair 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.
Tutorial video is available HERE.
- Picture Day Details
