Hair, makeup, and costume details:


Pre-ballet (Bakers)

- Costume: Pink skirt, apron, baker hat.  Please wear pink tights, a black sleeveless leotard (we sell them if you need one), and pink ballet shoes (ties tucked in).

- Hair: a bun or any style as long as it is pulled away from their face (so many of them have short hair) so this time since they are wearing a hat you can wear it however you like. We will need to pin hats down securely though so they don’t fall off.

- Makeup: stage makeup is worn so the dancers' faces don’t look washed out to the audience. I require the older girls to wear full stage makeup. At this age do what they are willing to let you do (some pink blush, lipstick or gloss, some eyeshadow).  You are of course welcome to do full stage makeup including mascara, eyeliner and foundation if your dancer is willing but not required.


I will have the first 2 rows of seats reserved for pre-ballet and family, after they perform we will bring them to the front row to watch the rest of the show and then we will bring them up for bows at the end.
