If you're new to the dance world, you need to have the right makeup! Sadly, every day makeup will not make dancers look their best when they are sweating and dancing under hot lights. What you need is stage makeup, which is made specifically for performers. Mode Dion has beautiful products that are easy to use, and reliable. In the world of dance, that's all you need for performance makeup.
Memory Makers, Inc.
Dance is about a lot of things, but most of all, you want parents to be able to have memories to hold onto. Most studios discourage photos being taken at dance recitals, and with good reason. Recitals are stressful enough for the dancers performing, and the flash coming off of phones and cameras can take them out of the moment and make them mess up. Hire a photographer like Memory Makers, Inc who will take individual photos of the dancers at the recital. It'll take stress off you and keep the parents happy at the same time!

It's not easy to be a dance studio owner. Between the stress of recitals, dealing with aggressive parents and the costs of keeping your studio open, it can seem like you're all alone. But you're not!

Even better, you'll be part of a community that supports and gets you.
