The showcase will begin at 3:30 PM. You will receive the showcase performance line-up in the next few days.

There will be two large spaces provided as dressing rooms. The costume check-list is attached to this e-mail. You are welcome to leave after you’ve finished all your routines, although we encourage everyone to stay and cheer on all performers.


This is a MANDATORY event and a great opportunity for the students to perform their competitive pieces before we hit the competition stage. This will take place off-site to utilize a larger floor and accommodate an audience.
Make sure to put your child’s name on every piece of costume they bring. This includes, shoes, shoe ties, make-up, etc. Be careful when writing inside thin costume material so it doesn’t bleed through. Look for a tag to write on if possible.


ATTENTION: THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO EATING OR DRINKING IN COSTUME. PLEASE BE CAUTIOUS OF RED LIPSTICK OR OTHER MAKE-UP ON COSTUMES. WE RECOMMEND YOU BRING A LONG SHIRT, ROBE OR OTHER COVER UP.


Please pick up the dressing area before you leave. Put chairs and/or desks back where you found them and do not leave bobby-pins, trash, etc. on the floor.

TEAM HAIR:

Here is the tutorial for the Competition hair. This is how students will wear their hair for all competitive routines unless noted otherwise. 


Reminder, we will not braid all the way down. The braids will lead into a low ponytail, which you will then put into a low bun. You will also need to use product such as gel & bobby pins to secure the bun and a hair net to avoid fly-aways. 
Please make sure to practice this hairstyle before the showcase or recruit someone to help your child with this.
