Theater Etiquette

We work very hard to give your dancers a professional show experience.  To do this we need your help.  Our recital audiences should behave in the same manner as they would if they were watching a professional Ballet or Broadway Show.  Here are a few guidelines:

Please do not put your feet up on the chairs, please do not holler names or sayings from the audience.

No exiting or entering while dancers are dancing- be courteous to those around you who are trying to watch the show and courteous to the kids on stage.

There is NO VIDEOTAPING or PHOTOGRAPHY of any kind during the show! 

Why?: This is for the safety of our dancers! Please let your party know. We have had some issues of parents posting pictures of children on social media without their parent’s consent.  Not every parent is comfortable with their child’s pictures or video being out on social media.

We also want to be sure the audience enjoys the show.  It is rude to the people around you to have a light on your phone or a phone or ipad blocking your view.  Please be courteous to the audience members around you, do not video or take photos.

Please pick up after not leave trash behind.      240-5556

Performance Ballet Bun

What do I need to start?

  • Hair brush or comb with close bristles
  • 1 Large covered hair elastic (hair tie, not scrunchies)
  • 2-4 small covered hair elastics
  • Hair net that matches your dancer’s hair (available at Longs or most drug stores)
  • Thick u-shaped hair pins (for the bun)
  • Bobby pins (for the hair net)
  • Hair spray
  • Hair gel


How do I make the bun?

1. Start with wet hair

2. Apply a liberal amount of gel to the hair, paying most attention to the hair on top to combat fly-aways

3. Pull wet hair back neatly into a ponytail at the crown of the head (not at the top of the head) using a brush or comb to avoid lumps and bumps in the hair. A tidy ponytail is the key to a good bun.

4. Secure ponytail with large hair elastic (no scrunchies)

5. Use hair spray to tame any fly-aways

6. Separate the bun into 2-4 pieces depending on the thickness of your dancer’s ponytail. Braid each section and secure with small hair elastic.

7. Wrap each braid individually around the hair elastic holding the ponytail. Try to keep the bun flat against the head: don’t wrap it so it gets taller, wrap it so it gets wider. Secure with hair pins as you wrap. Tuck the end under the coil and secure with hair pin.

8. Repeat with remaining braids. Use plenty of hair pins (12-16 on average)

9. Once you have created your bun, wrap your hair net around it as many times as it will allow for a snug fit.

10. Hold the hair net in place with a few bobby pins

11. Finish with hair spray


Short Hair:

  • Pull short hair back with bobby pins, hair elastics, or barrettes.
  • No hair should be hanging in the face.
  • See your teacher if you need help or ideas for short hair.
