Holiday Showcase, one of our bi-annual performances, gives our students a chance to show off all they have been working on in their classes and have the opportunity to Live on Stage!

Volunteers for Backstage Supervision and Front-of-House Help

Putting on a show this size requires the help of many volunteers. Please consider helping us by volunteering for the show your child is not in. By helping each other, we can ensure that every parent can watch their own child perform instead of “work” the show. If you prefer to volunteer during your child’s performance, you are welcome to “watch from the wings” backstage. If you would like to volunteer during our Holiday Showcase, head to our Sign Up Genius

Show Order & Practice Music

Click on the picture below to navigate to our Show Order for each performance. You’ll also find practice music, line ups, and underdressing reminders there.

 

Purchase Your Underdressings!

All performers are required to wear underdressings beneath their costumes:

Girls are required to wear skin-tone leotard and skin-tone tights (pink tights for Ballet routines).

Boys are required to wear a white T-shirt and black basketball shorts.

We have girls’ nude leotards, light suntan tights, and pink tights (for Ballet classes only) available for purchase. You can visit our Customer Portal to check if we have your child’s size in stock. Once you purchase from the Portal, we have them ready for pick-up in studio the following week. If we do not carry your child’s size, you can also purchase them here. Be sure to select a skin-tone color before purchasing.

Hair and Makeup

Following our hair and makeup guidelines ensures your performer will be clearly seen under the bright stage lights! Girls should wear their hair in a Hair in high, slicked back bun. Stage makeup should include foundation, blush, eyeshadow, mascara, red or pink lipstick. If your child’s hair is not long enough to get into a bun, or if you child refuses to wear certain parts of the makeup, just do your best to get as close to possible with what you can. See this Ballet Bun Tutorial video from Ms. Emily if you need help on securing a bun.
