Stage Makeup Information and Tutorial

Below is a list of recommended colors and brands. You do not need to order these brands, you can purchase any color/brand in a similar shade. We do have makeup available for purchase at the front desk. Makeup is used for stage so that the dancer's features are not washed out under the bright lights. Stage makeup is a part of stage arts. Dancers, you are beautiful without makeup and should only wear makeup for the stage. This should be a fun experience. If your dancer is having a hard time with makeup application, please just do what you can.

Eyeshadow 1: Shimmery ivory color or Yofi "Trance"

Eyeshadow 2: Dark brown or Yofi "Twisted" (NOT FOR HIP HOP TOTS OR TOT JAMM)

Rosemount High School Dance Show

Several of our dancers participated in the Rosemount High School Dance Show on March 1 & 2. Many of our dancers performed in the show while several others developed their own choreography and costuming for their own works within the show. We are so proud of our dancers and are grateful for the opportunity they have to take dance as a curriculum within our school district. If you have a high school student who loves to dance; please explore the option for them to take dance tech as part of their high school options.
