Dance tutorials which may assist
Check out the dance tutorials below for some help with doing hair buns, putting ribbons on shoes & stage makeup. Dance parents invest a lot of time, money & energy to helping their children’s dance progress through the various stages. Hours of driving to studios, maybe some super early mornings to get to competitions, not mention the costs of lessons and outfits. Parents are the unsung heroes juggling work, school and other commitments – so hopefully these little tutorials can help take a bit of pressure off!

Applying stage makeup:
Costumes and makeup play an important role in the drama, character creation, visual aesthetic and even practical elements in a production. Beyond setting and character, costumes and makeup play an important role in visibility and aesthetic. Makeup is necessary for ensuring that the features of an actor’s face are easy to see and don’t get “washed out” by the bright stage lights. Costumes perform a similar function, since a skilled costume designer will avoid colors and designs that are too pale or intricate to be distinguished by the audience.
