RECITAL COSTUME GUIDELINES - “MY BUCKET LIST” 2022 RECITAL 

All students will need Jazzy Tan Body Wrappers convertible tights and/or Theatrical Pink Body Wrappers convertible tights (unless otherwise specified - read each class guideline carefully). Damien's Dancewear in Chelmsford has this information on file. Hair should be in a bun centered in the back of the head unless otherwise specified.  All dancers should have generous amounts of makeup including bright lipstick. High tech lights create a "wash out" effect and dancers’ faces will not be seen on stage or video without it. Undergarments (clear strapped dance undergarments only are acceptable), jewelry, and colored nail polishes are not allowed. Please remove all tags from costumes. All hair elastics must match the color or dancers’ hair. Please arrive at Picture Day and Dress Rehearsal following the guidelines so that we can run each event efficiently allowing students to leave on time. Costume guidelines are in order of weekly scheduled classes. If you or your dancer feel more comfortable wearing a mask at the recital and/or while performing, please be sure to have a nude color or clear mask (disposable is fine).
