Hair and Make-up

We try not to be too fastidious about hair in class but for show it is extremely important to us.  When the hair is pulled back and off the face our children dance better, the stand taller and we see more of their smiles.  If you are new to hair please don't worry. There are some very helpful videos below for different hair types and you can always ask a teacher or another parent who has been part of a show with us before.  

See the first video for items you will need.

Hair and Make-up

Baby Ballet, Pre-Primary ballet and Primary Ballet: Make-up for this group is foundation, pink blush and eyeshadow, mascara (if they will let you!).  Hair is a donut bun in the middle of their head and hair must be neatly slicked with gel and hairspray (no flyaway bits please). Do not put lipstick on your child.  Our supervisors will add this once costumes are on.

Grade 1 - Grade 5 Ballet: Hair is a donut bun in the middle of their head and hair must be neatly slicked with gel and hairspray (no flyaway bits please). Make-up for this group is foundation, blush, natural eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner. Do not put lipstick on your child.  Our supervisors will add this once costumes are on. 

Tap and Street Dance students: Make-up for this group is foundation, blush, natural eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner. Hair is a donut bun in the middle of their head and hair must be neatly slicked with gel and hairspray (no flyaway bits please).  Do not put lipstick on your child.  Our supervisors will add this once costumes are on. 

Students should wear a cardigan/jacket to avoid loosening the hairstyle.

NB it can be difficult putting make-up on a child.  When you do, please be aware that the bright stage lights will lighten the complexion so generally more and darker is better.

 

See this link for a step by step guide to putting make-up onto children.
