I can't believe we are only 14 short weeks away from SHOWTIME 2019! It is such an exciting time of the year, but can bring anxiety and stress if we are not well-prepared. It is my hope to keep you well-informed and confident leading into your Twinkle Star's performance experience.
If at any time you have questions, please reach out!
As a Twinkle Star family, your SHOWTIME experience will differ from that of older dancers. It is important we keep our Twinkles relaxed, confident, and happy! We will try our best but your help as volunteers and parents will be essential in making it the best experience for your dancer.
In the coming weeks I will be providing families with information for SHOWTIME, please focus on the information for Twinkle Stars! It can be confusing, as each class experience varies from another. Twinkle Star requirements are less than those of older dancers and geared toward providing the best experience for their age group.
The bold font information:
Each Twinkle Star class will perform in TWO routines.
This will differ from the 2 routines performed in the holiday show, as we have learned from our last performance and made improvements!
Tuesday, Twinkle Stars 4-5:
Costumes were purchased in the Fall with either the VIP Performance Package or the individual costume fee.
*If you have recently enrolled (as of December or later) your costume fee will be on your account. The fee is due by March 15.
Costumes have been finalized and costume images will be available on your accounts in March.
Tights & Shoes for Costumes:
Each dancer receives 1 pair of tights with their costume. These tights are specifically for performance. Please do not use them for classes before Picture day & SHOWTIME.
Shoes are those used during season with dress code.

Hair & Makeup
Hair can be styled any way you'd like, as long as it is out of the face and not a distraction to the dancer. All hair styles must include any hair accessories provided with the costume.
Makeup is encouraged to help keep Twinkles from being washed out under the stage lights.
If you are a VIP SHINE family, your makeup kits will be arriving this Spring.
If you are interested in purchasing a Twinkle Star makeup kit, they will be available on our Parent Portal Online Store.
The makeup palette is specifically designed for the younger dancer with the perfect pairing of shades and products to provide a finished look without an overdone, too old makeup application!
Additional Performance Opportunity
All Twinkle Stars are invited and encouraged to take part in the Father Daughter dance! This season we are excited to offer it in a streaming video format to allow Daddy and Daughter to work it into their schedule and make it a date each time they wish to practice! With limited in studio rehearsals, we hope this opens the option for more families to enjoy this sweet experience with their dancer.
You can enroll for the Daddy Daughter dance in your Parent Portal.
