Younger children mostly need a little eyeshadow & lipstick (avoid eye liner for preschoolers).  Teens+ need foundation, eye shadow, rouge, eye liner & bright lip stick.

No videoing or flash photography is permitted from the audience. This is distracts our dancers – many of whom are performing on stage for the first time.

After fielding many complaints in previous years with large tablets, phones & video cameras blocking audience stage views, please respect this one-off opportunity to sit back & relax your children dancing.

DVDs will be for sale at $25 each & helps cover the cost of DVD production, live feed backstage & TV hire.
