Attached is the hair, tights and shoe lists requirements for each dance. A
few teachers have not yet updated everything on the list but as promised, I
wanted to get this out a month in advance and before our week off so that
everyone has time to get organized!
Our costume rehearsal days are Thursday March 16 and Saturday March 18. I
have attached a tentative schedule for these days as well!
I will send out updates as required.
I am looking for one parent rep for each age group who will:
Be present at costume rehearsal day.
Be present at all festivals
Will act as a liaison between parents and teachers for the age group at
Look after headpieces and props for their age group.(or designate)
Check all costume pieces, hair, tights, shoes before the students come
backstage to festival.
Gather the students in your group into practice space before each and every
group number so that teachers can rehearse them.
Be able to keep energy high but tension and nerves calm in a POSITIVE way.
Be helpful with pinning, hair etc with the group!
An all around go to!
Age groups still needed:
Pre Primary 2-Julia Getty Doyle
Primary 2-Julia Getty Doyle
I would like to have a brief meeting with these parents on costume
Clarity on Hip Hop Groups Shoes:
- Pri 2 Hip Hop Buzzin’: Black Boots (girls) Black Runners (boys)
- Hip Hop1/3 Military Mix: Black Boots (girls) Black Runners (boys)
- Hip Hop4 We Ain’t Playin’: Black Nike runners with white accents (all)
- Inter/7 Hip Hop Dangerous Divas: Black Nike runners with white accents (all)
- All Boys Hip Hop Da Boyz: Black runners
Also, for the large contemporary line Dear Younger Self, Heather would like the girls to wear white cotton dresses. The styles can all be slightly different but should be pure white, above the knee and easy to dance in. I want them to look youthful. I would also like them to wear white socks for this number.
Reids Hip Hop Group:
- Main colors should be Lumberjack red and black. Because nike runners have white, you can have accents of white but white should not be a main color. Keep it true Hip Hop style not jazzy.
