Please note that our website has a very comprehensive guide to Make Up & Hair. Go to www.steppingoutdance.com.au and hit link DUBBO NEWS to get full post and how to instructions on make up for stage. It will be in November archive. A link will also be posted on our Facebook page. We will post how to videos.
MAKE-UP- Foundation, powder, blusher, white/cream eye shadow as base for eye, eye socket shaded with brown eye shadow ( violet eye shadow for students 8 years & under), black eye liner, white pencil as highlighter, black mascara, false eye lashes ( optional but highly recommended for students from 10 years of age), hot pink lipstick ( under 12s), crimson ( 14 yrs & open.)
TINY TOTS- Parents use your discretion. Lipstick, blusher, shadow and mascara will be sufficient but ensure it is bright as the lights are very strong and can wash out those gorgeous little faces and we really want to see those beautiful smiles.
Students please ensure you wear white, nude colour or plain underwear under costuming and all straps etc must be pinned and unseen. Body stockings are available for older students.
BOYS- Hair in own funky style. Make up at own discretion and depending on child’s fairness. Blusher or bronzer usually sufficient.
HAIR & OTHER REQUIREMENTS FOR EACH GROUP AS FOLLOWS;
Please note that all hair styles will need to be slicked back from face. The best technique is to use a fine tooth comb on damp hair and gel and hairspray to smooth hair and fringes off face. Please ensure you use hair bands in matching hair shade or clear elastic bands. Students with hair accessories please ensure that these are pinned firmly. Hats, hair ties, hair pieces and wigs need to be pinned thoroughly.

We need a full dress rehearsal on Friday, 13th December as this is when our final lighting scheme will be decided upon. I understand that for a great deal of our families that there will be a rush from school and work and so we are very appreciative of your efforts. ( Concerts are meant to be fun so please don’t stress. We only ask that you do your best.)
Than you- Your children will not only look a million dollars but more importantly feel a million dollars. We can’t wait to see our students SHINE..
