SHOWCASE 2019 Details

SHOWCASE 2019

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16th   6:30pm  Eastdale Collegiate

Pictures taken on picture day will be available for viewing and purchase at Showcase. 

We will be having a full rehearsal of Showcase at the studio after Picture Day.  Dancers are requested to wear appropriate (they don’t ride up / fall down etc!!) BLACK DANCE CLOTHES.  Please use all the proper shoes/footwear.

Dancers need to arrive at EASTDALE by 4:45 in full hair and make-up and already warmed up!!  (and fed!) They should get settled in the change rooms then go immediately to the stage so we can start our rehearsal.    Only selected groups will be able to rehearse on stage.  At 6:10pm house doors will open and the dancers will clear out of the auditorium and prepare for the show.  Dancers are asked to bring nothing but water bottles and non-messy snacks with them! GUM IS NOT ALLOWED.  Parents will not be permitted in to the rehearsal.  Please form a friendly and organized line up for when the house doors open.  Just a reminder that tickets are $25 each including HST and competitive team dancers are required to purchase a minimum of 4 each or 6 per family.  Buy 5 tickets and get one free!  Dancers in the show will not need to show a ticket to get in. 

Please remember that most solos, duets, trios and even small groups will not be performed in the Recital in June.  Dances to go in the Recital will be chosen based on consistent high marks at competitions, overall awards, entertainment value, overall attendance, attitude and a recommendation from the choreographer (who will consider punctuality, coming prepared and warmed up, co-operation, “marking” etc.)  

Thank you for your assistance in making this day run as smoothly as possible!

Hair and Make-up General

HAIR AND MAKE-UP DETAILS THE DANCE EXPERIENCE    2019 COMPETITIVE TEAM

Everyone should know: 

*extra pair of tights at all times – includes fishnets! please make sure your tights are NEW so they are the right colour!!

*remember all your costume pieces and shoes - do not expect to be allowed to dance unless in full costume

*no bangs of any kind, ever!  No underwear under costumes (thongs permitted)

*be at all competitions with hair and make-up done ONE HOUR before scheduled dance time.  Many competitions state in the rules that dancers are to be ready to dance as much as one hour before scheduled time.  If you intend to get in costume, fix hair, do make-up, etc., at the location, then you need to be there earlier than one hour ahead.  Dancers should be with their teachers and ready to warm-up and run dances one hour ahead.  Teachers may have several groups to warm-up, rehearse, and be backstage with in that one-hour period and the last thing we need (we get stressed and nervous too!) is to look for missing dancers.  If the competition happens to be running behind schedule, you may be given permission to sit in the audience and watch and come back at a designated time.  Please only do this if you have permission!

*no food or gum in costume or near any dance costumes!   Water only!             

*no nail polish or jewelry (except our dance bling)!!     (and no gum!)

*when not on stage, costumes should be covered up.  Please use “Dance Experience” warm-up gear.

HAIR

New year new Hair Style!  2019 hair will be a classic low bun with a center part – completely slicked down with gel or other product.  Every TDE choreographer will be armed with gel at all events.  Don’t make us use it!  Cement down those wispies!  We will post pictures on the website.  For Musical Theatre and Hip Hop at competitions we will try to do the “requested” styles provided it “works”.  Watch for hair instructions in emails.  Solos and duets are free to have a fun hair style of their choosing provided they have time and permission from the choreographer.  For picture day and Showcase everything will be the Hair Style 2019 to keep things easy.

     

MAKE –UP   *Will be the same as last year.  

YOU WILL NEED:

*Foundation and powder to match skin tone (or a shade darker).

*Blush (fairly dark).  (two shades to be used for contouring is recommended)

*Black and white eye shadow and black eyeliner  (recommend a liquid and a pencil) + brown eyebrow pencil

*Lips should be outlined in a shade darker than the lipstick, or in brown.  Musical theatre numbers should have lips outlined in black.

 ALL LIPSTICK WILL BE “RED HOT” (L’Oreal # 330 – possibly discontinued) or “BRITISH RED” (L’Oreal #350 – was discontinued but it’s back) OR “TRUE RED” L’Oreal #502.  L’Oreal also has a “Red” which is fine as well.

When applying make-up, please remember that the purpose of it is NOT to make yourself/your daughter look pretty for going on stage.  NOR is the purpose to “match” the costume!  It is stage make-up, which is intended to enhance their natural features from far away under bright lights that would normally wash them out and turn them into dancing white blobs.  (If you look nice when you’re finished applying your make-up, then you aren’t finished!) Eyebrow pencil for the fairer girls is crucial!!!  We want to see EXPRESSION!!

*Earrings, chokers, and rhinestone hair accessories will be worn for all dances unless specified.  (check the chart)  

 

Just a reminder that competition info will go out via the website and email only! Watch for them!

See over for more details specific to each dance.  Solos, Duets and Trios please consult your choreographer. 

Good Luck to all this year – and remember, be responsible, be a team, and have fun!   XO Terri
