Home for the Holidays

Our fall semester recital is a festive performance of holiday themed dances, telling the story of Clara and her magical holiday journey, where toys come to life, snowflakes dance through the forest, and we celebrate the holidays with different cultures from around the globe! This is performed by all of our DHDC students (company and recreational), with each class presenting a different dance in the show. All holiday show fees for participating students are due September 15th.



Costume hand out week will be December 1st - 7th. Please plan on coming in the last 15 minutes of class to help try on and collect your dancer's costume. Holiday show costumes are yours to keep after the performance. Dancers must provide their tights and shoes needed based on individual classes.



Ticket hand out week will be December 1st - 7th. Families will receive 2 complimentary tickets per dancer. You MUST have your ticket to enter the theater. Additional tickets will be available for purchase online for $15 each on December 1st.



We will have a sign up for Digital Video orders in the lobby at the performance for $25 each. You will be emailed your download link shortly following the show. We accept cash or check at the theater, or can bill your video order to your online account.


EYE – Medium brown shadow on the lid. Dark brown in the crease, white under the eyebrows. Darken brows with pencil. Black eyeliner winged out from upper and lower lid with white pencil in between the lines.  Finish with black mascara and false lashes (company dancers and dancers 12+)

SKIN – Match skin tone with foundation and finish with translucent powder to reduce shine.

CHEEKS – Apply pink blush heavily along the line of the cheek bone.

LIPS – Bright red lips. I recommend Love That Red or Cherries in the Snow by Revlon. Avoid orange or purple reds.

HAIR - Using hair gel, comb hair into high ponytail, slick with no wispies. Wrap the ponytail into a clean, flat, bun. Cover with a hairnet and pin with ample bobby pins until secure. Use plenty of hairspray.


We will have recital portrait sessions and photo packages available for purchase with Photographer Daniel Cutts. We will begin photo bookings on September 15th.
