On the day of the Performance

Dancers are to arrive at the Pablo Center 45 minutes prior to their performance time in their first costume/hair/make-up. 

Our friendly staff team will direct you to your dancers dressing room. 

Dancers are not allowed to leave the backstage area during the performance for any reason. This is for your dancers safety and to ensure that all dancers are accounted for. 

Please be sure to send a water bottle with your Childs name labeled on it and a snack (nut free) that will not stain their costume. 

Please label all costumes, accessories and dance shoes with your child's name. We can not guarantee the return of personal items left at the theater. 

Backstage Volunteers

Our BACKSTAGE VOLUNTEERS are the parents who volunteer their time and energy to work with their child's classes or another class during the performance. Please consider helping this year!

It is not too early to sign up as a backstage volunteer. Please sign up at our front desk. Our office staff will be delighted to speak with you and place you with your child's class, or where you will be most helpful.

At Diamond School of Dance, the Recital is a very important memory in all of our lives, especially the children, complimenting all their hard work and dedication throughout the year. Our first and foremost priority is the safety and comfort of your children!

Thanks for making this performance a wonderful experience for the dancers!

Tights, Hair and Make Up

We carry professional dance tights at the studio for your convenience. Our friendly office staff is available Monday-Thursday 4:00-7:00 and Friday 4:00-6:00 to assist you with any dance wear and shoe purchases.

Tights are $8 for footed tights and $16 for convertible tights.

We also carry nude undergarments as underwear and bras should not be worn under costumes.

Be sure to purchase yours early to prevent rushing at the last minute.

The studio will be open to purchase tights and shoes until May 31 after which we will be closed through the show for dress rehearsal week. 

Hair: ALL studio dancers will wear their hair in a high bun on top the head. Hair should be pulled back neatly and tightly and sprayed with plenty of hairspray to keep it in place and prevent wispy hairs.


It is very important to wear stage make-up for recitals. The very bright stage lights will wash out your dancer’s features. Make-up will be applied quite a bit heavier and darker than you normally would. 

  • Start with a foundation that is slightly darker than normal (the stage lights will wash out your skin tone)
  • Apply a rosy blush and blend well.
  • Use a lipstick color a few shades darker than your natural lip color.


Applying Eye Makeup:

  • Put a neutral-colored eye shadow such as tan on each eyelid and right underneath each eyebrow.
  • Add a darker color eye shadow such as cocoa to the space in between.
Blend both colors.
  • Apply black eyeliner to both the top and bottom eyelids.
Extend the eyeliner about a 1/2 inch beyond the outer corner of each eye. This helps the eyes appear larger.
  • Apply two coats of black mascara after applying eye shadow
and eyeliner. 

Please Note: No nail polish, tattoos or jewelry will be allowed. Thank you!

Creating a Recital Bun

1. Put your hair in a ponytail. Please note, where you position the pony tail will determine your bun’s final position, so keep it to a high pony tail to create a very high bun! (Bun should be directly above the ears on top the head).

2. Thread your ponytail through the middle of the doughnut.

3. Once this is done, find the middle of your ponytail from the hair that has been pulled through the doughnut. Smooth the hair around the whole of the doughnut, so it is neatly covering the whole of the doughnut.

4. With one hand on the center of your bun (to keep the main shape in place), begin to wind the remaining hair around the doughnut in a circular motion.

5. As you wrap it around you will find it naturally tucks under the doughnut, so you can keep winding it around making it tighter. Make sure the doughnut is still fully covered.

6. Then use a hair tie, bobby pins, hair net and hairspray to hold the wrapped around hair under the doughnut. Just slide them do any hair sticking out. This will keep the hair strong and neat.

We are blessed to work with your children every week. Sit back and enjoy the show!
