Skin-Toned Body Liners: DEADLINE TO ORDER: MAY 12
-- We strongly recommend dancers purchase a skin-toned body liner to wear under their recital costume! Many dancers have already purchased one to wear for previous recitals or Nutcracker- you do not need to buy a new one if it still fits.
We have noticed that the skin-toned body liners tend to run small and have specific ones you can try on at the front desk to pick which size fits you best before placing your order!
Here are some of the benefits of wearing a skin-toned body liner:
Added privacy when changing costumes:
Due to the lack of privacy backstage, wearing a skin-toned body liner can help make some dancers more comfortable when changing costumes in the dressing rooms during the recital as well as during quick changes when CS staff may be helping them change.
Dancers can arrive already wearing their skin-toned body liner and tights under their street clothes!
If tights need to be changed during the recital (For example: Kindergarten Combo dancers will wear pink tights for ballet and skin-tone tights for tap), dancers will be able to put their body liner on first and their first pair of tights on over the body liner at home and never need to take off the body liner in the dressing room to make the costume change!
Creative Movement and Precombo dancers will arrive already wearing their recital costume, so they will only change backstage if they are participating in the VIP & Me dance!
A skin-toned body liner might also help some costumes feel less scratchy! :)
While we encourage wearing a body liner for the recital, this is an optional purchase! In order to ensure we can get the the right quantity and sizes in time, please fill out the online order form via this link! https://forms.gle/ybft6zUd3crn6MHC8
