Color of Shoes/Tights for Nutcracker PartsAre you ready?
2
Wondering what color shoes/tights you need to have for each of your parts? Checklist: PRIOR TO RUN THROUGH (only some dances will be run in costume) AT THE STUDIO ON DEC. 1st 2018, please make sure you've purchased the following at our SBDA studio to ensure uniformity and consistency among all dancers...

▪ tights: at least one pair of clean, pristine pink tights is required so that all dancers are uniform in hue and quality (and having a backup pair on hand is never a bad idea!). If the character's costume calls for black tights, make sure you have them on hand as well! (Reference the chart; some parts have stockings provided; if the part is not listed, assume standard pink tights)

▪ nude leotard: make sure your female dancer has a nude leotard to wear under costumes for backstage dressing rooms and quick changes

▪ appropriate footwear: check the chart below to ensure your dancer has the proper footwear for his/her part (if the part is not listed, assume standard pink ballet shoes)

Consult your dancer's choreographer, or Costume Mistress Ms. Paula with any questions.
