Costume Guide 2017

 

The list below will answer any questions you have about your child’s costume and items that they may need for the day of the show. LoPresti Dance Theatre likes to maintain a professional look so for the dress rehearsal and the recital all students are required to wear their hair slicked back in a low bun. No bangs. The easiest way to get your child’s hair in a bun is by doing it when the hair is wet. Pull the hair back in a low ponytail, then wrap the ponytail around itself making a flat bun. Using a hairnet works the best, along with many bobby pins and lots of hairspray and gel. Creative Movement students can wear their hair however they like as long as it is off of their faces. All students must be in tights (even if your child is wearing pants). Tights must be worn under all costumes. There is absolutely no underwear allowed on stage. Tights can be purchased at discountdance.com
