Performance Makeup: All performance makeup must be applied prior to dancers entering the theater for dress rehearsals and performances. Parents will be responsible for doing their own dancer’s makeup. Below is the list of makeup required for Ballet West Nutcracker. Dancers are allowed to use comparable brands, but the color must be the same. Please reference the above photos for makeup.
- Ben Nye: Eye Shadow Taupe (ES-34)
- Ben Nye: Victorian Rose Cheek (DR-61)
- Black or Brown Eye Liner
- Black or Brown Brow Pencil depending on hair color
- Ben Nye: Natural Lip Liner (LP-134)
- Ben Nye: Natural Lip Stick (LS-7)
Performance Shoes: Pink canvas ballet shoes with pink elastic are required. Your shoes must be “performance ready”. That means the elastics are neatly sewn on and that your shoes are clean. Remember two pairs of shoes are required in your dance bag for just this reason. One pair can be an old pair. Please Note: The wardrobe department does not repair shoes. Remember two pairs of shoes are required in your dance bag for this reason.
Performance Tights and Leotard: Ballet West prefers, Bodywrappers Tights #C45 (girls) or #A45 (ladies) in Theatrical Pink. No 100% Lycra Tights. A pastel tone or nude full short sleeve style leotard is required for the performance. (A full short sleeve leotard means the length of the sleeve is half way down the arm to the elbow. The underarm is completely covered, inside the sleeve of the leotard.)
Party Girl # 3B will need a leotard with a wide neck opening. (Any leotard is fine for the costume fitting for all party girls)
COSTUMES: All costumes pieces are numbered. Costumes are assigned during your fitting. You will wear the same costume for all of your performances.
