Hair and Makeup (Ballet Edition)


Female Dancers

  • Bun: A bun means the hair is tight to the head with no bangs or loose, wispy hairs falling around the neck or face.  The bun must be secure, flat, and larger than the size of your palm.  Do not use a donut or buns made out of braids. Buns should be at the back of the head (not on top) to make room for headpieces.
  • Party Girls & Party Parents must purchase and wear a drawstring curly ponytail hairpiece that will attach easily over bun.

Male Dancers

  • Hair should be off the face and styled neat and tidy. Hair spray and/or gel should be used as needed.


Parents know their kids better than anyone else does, so they may be better equipped to gauge what their little ones can handle when for the patience and cautiousness that comes with a full face of makeup.

Typically less is more when it comes to stage makeup for kids but it is important to apply some makeup to make dancers more visible to the audience and the overall look of the performance.

Female Makeup should include

  • Foundation
  • Blush
  • Eye Shadow
  • Eyeliner
  • Mascara
  • Lipstick (Please do not send dancers under 10 years old with lipstick)

Fingernails: Only natural color nails. No long acrylic nails or French manicures.
