GIRLS Hair & Make-Up
Hair: low ponytail in back with part on the left side over your heart. Bangs should be pulled back to not be in your face. Use Hair Spray to make sure hair stays. If cannot do ponytail due to length, can do a half up and half down or if too short be sure it’s out of your face.
Make up: Foundation that matches your skin. Eye shadow – use natural colors tan and browns look great, nothing bold, earth tone colors work best. Use black eye liner on top and bottom and black mascara. Lip stick mauve or roses color looks great.
BOYS as you are…be sure hair is out of the face and light accent of features if you feel it is needed

TUMBLING CLASSES SPRING SHOWCASE
Gymnastic showcase, We have discussed this at length and decided that due to space constraints that it would be best for the showcase to be held at Elkin High School. This will allow for anyone that you invite to come and watch your child present their skills. I also wanted to let you know that we did not order a costume or leotard for the students this year. This was to keep cost low. Parents will not be able to video due to copyright restrictions for music, however they will be able to take pictures as long as they do not use flash photography. Parents will also be given the opportunity to purchase a video of your child’s performance. This information will be sent out at a later time. Gymnastic students are also welcome and encouraged to participate in picture week. We will do group pictures of each class and children can do an individual. They need to wear a leotard, tights, and their gymnastic shoes. Boys will wear t-shirt, shorts, and gymnastic shoes.
