ATTN ALL STUDENTS WHO ARE PERFORMING: Winton, Distance Dance Virtual Showing via Zoom, Cloncurry, Julia Creek, Richmond & Hughenden. (Barcaldine TBC).

We will give me detailed example images of what we would like your childs hair and make-up to look like closer to the time.

Ahead of attending your child’s first dress rehearsal (see dates & times on timetable), you will need to make sure that you have the following: 

Tan tights - Ultra shimmer stirrup tights: Due to quick changes students are not required to wear any other types of tights, they wear the same tights for the entire performance. (Orders through Branches Performing Arts have now closed).


Preferably dancers wear only their tights under their costumes (no underwear).

If you/your child are not comfortable with this we suggest; high cut skin colour under-wear. (make sure underwear can not be seen when wearing costume.)
