If dance and prep is new to you, please be advised (regarding performances):
GIRLS: wear blue eyeshadow, eyeliner (at outer edge of eye), red lipstick, blush. Red beads. No pantyhose, no jewelry, no nail polish preferred.
French braids, preferably two if possible.
All bangs have to be pinned back from the forehead.
Pin slips to shirts, pin skirts in place. If there is a sash, pin that in place also! Red beads can be pinned to the back neckline of female shirts to help keep them in place.
Bobby pins to keep headpieces in place. You can attach a safety pin to the inside of a headpiece (to hook a bobby pin through) if it cannot be bobby pinned on its own.
BOYS - BLACK SOCKS, black dance slippers (unless you are in a group that has been given hutzul shoes and socks).
Pin shirts to pants, sash as needed! If you need assistance with the sash, be sure to come early so someone can help!
If unsure, please ask! Someone will be able to help you out! Have your hair done and costume on when you arrive. If you are unsure of any makeup, sashes etc, arrive early so someone can assist you.
