following information is for the dancers participating in
Everyone should have a caftan. They are very easy to make.
It is a dress that we wear as a cover-up or robe to conceal
your costume when you are not performing. It is not acceptable
to be mingling in a two piece costume where a lot of skin
is shown, nor should you draw attention to yourself when other
people are on stage performing.
Don't forget to....
1. Buy tickets for your guests.
2. Order your video or DVD.
3. Get your name on the sign up sheet.
4. Get a cover up.
5. Print out directions to the show.
This is a family-friendly event. Do not wear a plain
store-bought bra as a costume or wear sheer skirts or harem
pants alone. Layer so that your panties are not seen when
you are dancing under strong stage lights. Bring safety pins
to secure your costume and a cover up that conceals your entire
costume. Slip on shoes and bottled water will make your evening
more comfortable. Even though there are mirrors in the dressing
room you should put your make up on at home. Then put the
finishing touches on at the school. Bring water.
Before you leave for the show:
1. Eat and drink well.
2. Relax and remember how much you love to dance.
3. Pack your: cover up (caftan), costume, accessories, Props,
make-up, safety pins, dance shoes, slippers, water, a light
snack, tickets, and directions.
4. Arrive on time, park in the parking lot D then meet up
with your group and prepare for your one shot on the stage.
During the show:
1. When you enter or leave the auditorium you must be wearing
your caftan and don't walk in front of the videographers or
2. Be back stage ready to perform 2-3 dances before you're
up and listen to or help stage volunteers.
3. Be organized and calm.
4. Offer to help if you can.
5. Encourage your dance sisters.
After the show:
Take home everything you brought with you.
Thank you to everyone who will be performing in this year's
show. It means a great deal to me that you have enjoyed learning
this dance as much as I enjoyed teaching it. Thank you for
your hard work and your courage to express yourself through
dance. I hope you discover what a great experience it is to
perform for so many loving family members and friends.
