9th Annual Holiday Showcase Class Music & Costuming

Below is listed the general costuming requirements for each of our showcase dance numbers and the corresponding classes performing each number. Please begin to look for the items listed that your dancer will need. Dancers will be asked to bring their costume pieces to their appropriate staging rehearsal during the first weekend in December.

If you purchase anything new, please save your receipts and keep the tags on each item, as you may want to return items you do not end up using. Feel free to purchase extra items which other dancers can purchase from you to help complete their costume. The more teamwork, the better! Costuming specifics will be finalized after your dancers’ first staging rehearsal.

Note: Dancers participating in our 9th Annual Holiday Showcase will receive a CD of the Holiday Showcase music at their first staging rehearsal.
