TIPS AND TRICKS FOR A SUCCESSFUL PERFORMANCE

  • Please refer to the “Nutcracker Hair/Makeup Costume Details” and purchase your performance pieces no less than two weeks before the performance to be sure you’ll get what is required. 

  • Two pairs (or more) of tights are highly recommended as the children will be wearing them for multiple performances and this will guard against accidental holes appearing on stage, as well as greatly reduce the number of laundry loads for the week!! They can be purchased at Metronome Dancewear.

  • If your child is to wear a bun, all hair should be gelled straight back (no part) and stubborn wisps tamed with bobby pins and then sprayed! Most children have more than one hair accessory so hair should be well in place to reduce movement when we change out accessories.  Buns should be covered with a hairnet.  Bun-makers are great aides for shorter-haired children as well as for those of us that are bun-challenged!  Hair supplies can be purchased at Metronome Dancewear.

  • Bunhead Bunpins are highly recommend, they’re “industrial” strength and come in various lengths. You’ll find these at Metronome Dancewear, Discount Dance or Amazon.

  • Please send your child to the theatre in a button up shirt or zippered sweatshirt – nothing that will have to be removed by pulling over the wonderful hairstyle you worked so hard on!

  • A zippered garment bag with your child’s name written clearly on front and back will help your little one identify his/her costumes and keep organized in the dressing room.  Garment bags can be purchased at Metronome Dancewear or online.

  • Please make sure that ALL costume pieces and personal items are labeled with your dancer’s name. If your costume accidentally came home without a label, we ask that you write your dancer’s name on a small piece of masking tape and secure it to the inside neck of the costume.  Again, every piece should be labeled as there are multiple pieces.

  • A small zip-lock bag with a bunch of extra bobby pins and their lipstick (all make-up should be applied at home except lipstick which will be put on after they dress into costume) is very helpful for all dancers to have on hand!

  • Please leave all necklaces, bracelets, and earrings at home (unless ears have very recently been pierced). In addition to jewelry being a safety issue, we’d like to avoid any possible loss of precious items!  Also, no nail polish (or toe polish for those dancing barefoot).

  • Consider taking your child’s photo in costume before dress rehearsal – once the costumes arrive at the theatre, they will not be going home again.

  • Please take a few minutes to chat with your child about keeping all their costume items in their bag (my rule is if it’s not on your body, it’s in your bag!) to reduce missing pieces and hectic searches. Also, positive dressing room etiquette is encouraged – help your fellow dancer, do not share make-up, be respectful when they or someone else is changing, and soft voices are greatly appreciated!
