Recital Running Order

  • Arrive at Pioneer Center one hour before starting time with hair and makeup done. 
  • Lipstick should be applied backstage.
  • Please have the dancers in their tights with a button-up shirt, dress or robe for changing that doesn’t have to go over their head.
  • For the young dancers, there will be circle areas set up for each class. 
    • The dancer will be taken to that area and set up with their sleeping bag, costume and supply box. The older girls will take care of them (and they do a great job!!!)
  • Please remind the children that the recital is a professional setting, and they need to act accordingly. No running, shouting, jumping, etc. 
Recital Supply List and Do's and Don'ts
  • Plastic Box with Lid: Approximately 12x12x8. A great place to store all your supplies below. And remember to put your name on everything!
  • Hair supplies: Hair ties, hair net, hair pins, bobby pins, brush, comb, hair
  • spray, hair gel.
  • Make up: There's a diagram on the makeup board in the front room (NDA Family Connect is also selling makeup kits this year!). Blush, brown eyeshadow, white eyeshadow, black mascara, black liquid eyeliner, pink lipstick or red lipstick depending on the routine. The Photo Day post has the full list of make up as well as a helpful picture.
  •  Tights: New pair (or very clean, no holes) and one extra pair (just in case).
  • Extra pair of underwear: For younger dancers in case of an emergency.
  • Shoes: Clean as possible or new (the type of shoe depends on the number the dancer is in: ballet, tap, hip hop or jazz shoes). Safety pins, hand wipes, makeup remover wipes.
  • Snacks and water: Bottle of water or clear liquid, a snack that is not messy, NO NUTS, PLEASE! (e.g. pretzels, goldfish crackers, crackers, apple slices, carrots).
  • Quiet activities: Cards, book or other quiet activity to do while they are backstage waiting for their turn.
  • Sleeping bag: Very important for the younger dancers so they know their area and have somewhere soft and clean to sit.
  • No jewelry: This means no earrings, watches, necklaces, etc.

Thank you to all teachers, parents, grandparents, and relatives who support and do so much for the NDA and their dancers (transportation, recitals, costumes, competitions, etc.!). We appreciate your support!

So, we don't have the kids in make up on the day of? We leave the make up for them to be applied by other girls or volunteers? In a plastic bin? How young are the younger girls that need sleeping bags?

Nevermind...I just make up but no lipstick.

Sorry! I just saw this. For recital day, lipstick is applied backstage, but the dancers should arrive with make up on. Dancers in Intro, Primary 1-3 and Grade 1 shoukd have sleeping bags because their costumes/tights can get dirty from sitting on the floor backstage.
