Recital Time!

By Ballerinablogger
It's about that time that schools are finishing up their year and offering a final performance of the season. I know that during my school's recital it's extremely hectic and everyone is feeling a bit flustered. Here is a list of things that you will need so you can feel better prepared for that year-end show.
  • Costumes. This is a given, but you'd be surprised how many people forget pieces of the costume or their costume altogether! Go through every piece and accessory before leaving for the show.
  • Makeup. Also an obvious one, but you don't want to show up at the auditorium and realize that you've forgotten your lipstick.
  • Hair supplies. Bobby pins, hair pins, brush, elastics, HAIRSPRAY IS A MUST-HAVE!
  • Shoes. Pointe shoes, tap shoes, ballet flats, jazz shoes, character shoes... Whatever you may need, make sure you have them!
  • Water bottle. I know I always like to have a water bottle after I come off stage panting.
  • Warm-ups (optional) You'll probably want to warm up for your number to prevent injury.
  • Bobby pins. I know I already said that but seriously... You'll need a lot of bobby pins.
And there you have it! For other performances I find myself needing more supplies (still not sure why that is) but these are the must-haves of recitals. You can bring an iPod or music playing device to calm yourself down before a show or whatever else you may want to help you feel ready to go out on stage. Break a leg everyone!
