Performance Items & Clothing

posted May 14, 2013, 10:01 AM by Sarah Hale

What dancers will need:

Here are the things dancers will need throughout the rehearsal week. No items that are needed for the show leave the college between rehearsals or performances. Each dancer will have a box to keep their items organized. Costume changes happen in the homeroom, so underclothes (cami/tank & spankies for girls; shorts & t-shirt/tank for boys) are necessary. Using bathrooms for changing is not allowed.

  • Blue Jeans, no holes, not faded or "distressed"

  • Plain dark belt

  • Socks (2 pair at least)

  • Sneakers that tie securely

  • Camisole or tank top (girls), t-shirt/tank (boys)

  • Bike shorts or spankies (girls); shorts (boys)

  • Hair ties, hair spray

  • Comb and/or brush

  • Deodorant

  • Make-up - all girls wear blush and lipstick

  • Refillable water bottle

  • Change of clothes (optional)

  • Cards/book, etc. for down time; electronics OK but at your own risk

  • Permanent markers (for signing programs and/or shirts after final show)

  • Act 1 Event t-shirt supplied by NHDI (I will get these to the dancers)

  • Act 2 Costume (I will bring)

Please let me know if you are having difficulty pulling together any of these items.

Our 2012-13 Team is Set!

posted Oct 31, 2012, 1:17 PM by Sarah Hale

It looks like we have another spectacular year to look forward to with NHDI at GBS. Our team is set at thirty-four incredibly enthusiastic dancers. As always, we have many returning dancers, with new members at each grade level. We're always sad to say goodbye to our 8th graders in the Spring, but it's so nice to welcome our 5th graders in the Fall!

Thanks to everyone for getting registration materials in so quickly!
