  • Girls should not wear underwear, but instead wear the included tights. We recommend purchasing a back-up pair. Boys should wear socks that match their shoe color. 

  • Girls should have their hair in a low-bun with NO BANGS and wear neutral eyeshadows. Bun kits can be purchased in Fusion's office, and a video tutorial can be found at the bottom of this page. Boys should "do" their hair with gel or hairspray so that it does not fall in their eyes. 

  • Nail polish or jewelry are not allowed on stage. PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR DANCER WITH ANY VALUABLES.

RECITAL DAY

DRESSING ROOMS

  • DANCERS MUST BE SIGNED IN 30 MINUTES BEFORE THEIR ASSIGNED SHOWTIME.

  • Every dancer has an assigned group in the dressing room with dedicated staff for each group. AT DROP OFF each dancer MUST be signed in by a parent or guardian of the SAME GENDER. For safety reasons, THE SAME parent or guardian must sign them out at the end of the show. After signing in your dancer, you will be given ONE backstage wristband per family. If you need to come to the dressing room during the show, you must be wearing a wristband. Please note that there are many volunteers and staff backstage to assist with costume changing and bathroom breaks, so we encourage you to relax and enjoy the show! 

  • Dancers must remain in the dressing room for the entire show. There are no exceptions. Dancers are not allowed in the auditorium. Siblings performing in the same show will be able to watch on the television that our videographer sets up in the dressing room. At the end of the show, every Dancer is brought back on stage to take a final bow and to receive a medal.

  • Products with common allergens like nuts are not allowed in the dressing rooms. Our performances are short, please only send a snack if your dancer is in multiple performances. Please do not forget to remove your dancer's jewelry and to take it and other valuables with you.
