All dancers are required to wear stage make-up. Wearing makeup ensures that you will see your dancer's face under the bright lights of the stage.

For the make-up tutorial, under-eye shadow is not necessary and eye liner may be used instead.

Supplies needed:

  • Foundation that matches the dancer's skin

  • Brown eye shadow

  • Eye shadow brush

  • Black or brown eyeliner

  • Black or brown mascara (waterproof - in case we have tears)

  • Medium pink blush

  • Blush brush

  • Red lipstick (lip stains work great for little ones because they cannot come off easily - we recommend a brick red color like the wording below about jewelry)

  • Red lip liner (a must for using lip stains)

  • Make-up remover wipes (just in case you need to start over)

Please remove all jewelry (including earrings) and nail polish on fingers and toes for dress rehearsal and recital.

Following the show, baby oil makes a very effective and gentle make-up remover - especially around the eyes.  Be sure to follow with a mild face wash to remove any excess oil.  Please make every attempt to bring your dancer stage-ready to the dress rehearsal and recital.  Don't forget to wear the first costume of the day too!


As a reminder, female dancers are not allowed to wear panties with their costumes.  We do not want Dora or My Little Pony peaking out on stage.  The tights serve the same purpose and are required for each dance.
