More Information:

UNDERGARMENTS

We highly recommend that all girls have a dance undergarment to wear underneath their costumes such as a skin tone leotard or plain high cut briefs in a beige colour. No bright colours, patterns, images, boy leg or low cut as these will be seen under costumes. This is a suitable style available from Bonds - https://www.bonds.com.au/girls-bikini-4pk-uzr14a-a36.html. Boys may wear underwear of their choice under their black leggings.

 

TIGHTS

Should be in the closest shade to the colour of your child’s ballet shoes – Ballet Pink (to match canvas shoes) or Salmon Pink (to match leather shoes). We sell KNJ brand tights at our uniform shop in both Ballet Pink and Salmon Pink.

 

SHOES

Ballet shoes from any reputable dancewear brand are acceptable. These can be canvas or leather, split sole or full sole, in a ballet pink/beige colour (girls) or black (boys). These should come with one or two elastics pre-sewn across the foot – no ribbons.

 

We sell MDM brand shoes (canvas) at our uniform shop.

 

Tap Shoes and Jazz Shoes should be tan coloured (girls) or black coloured (boys). We sell PW brand tap shoes and MDM brand jazz shoes at our uniform shop.

 

WHERE TO BUY

Tights and leotards can be ordered on our website and picked up at your child's class, or purchased at the uniform shop/admin desk. All shoes need to be tried on so please see the reception desk at Milton or Clayfield. Alternatively, all items are available from the following dancewear stores - Bloch (Fortitude Valley), Sue's Shop (Indooroopilly), Step By Step (Brendale). We do not recommend purchasing dance shoes or tights from discount retailers like Kmart/Big W etc.

 

HAIR & MAKEUP

As we are performing under theatrical lighting, some stage makeup is highly recommended for all performers to ensure their beautiful faces can be seen by the audience. As we are performing in a professional theatre with strong stage lighting, faces on stage can appear very washed out to the audience and on the video. We recommend - matte foundation, blush/bronzer, brown eyeshadow, brown/black eyeliner & mascara, red stay-fast lipstick. Please no coloured eyeshadows or glitter.

 

All ballet and Junior Dancers must wear their hair in a neat ballet bun, secured at the centre back of the head with a strong hair elastic, hair net, bun pins and hairspray. All other styles should wear a slick pony tail, secured at the back of the head with a strong hair elastic & hairspray. Boys and girls with short hair styles should have hair styled neatly off the face with hairspray/gel.

We will send detailed instructions for hair & makeup closer to the concert dates.
