Our Team Mission To be a classy team committed to learning, having fun and striving for excellence! Our Team Mission:
To Do Tips for the Gentlemen SUITS: Choose a conservative style, dark colors: black, dark gray, charcoal, olive or navy (Avoid flashy or showy fabrics) Make sure your suit is altered to fit properly - sleeves should break just below your wrist SHIRTS: Collars should be stiff but comfortable (too loose looks tacky; too tight, you'll feel like you're choking). TIES: Colors should work back into your suit or work well with your shirt. Patterns should not be distracting or silly. Should end at belt line - no higher, no lower SHOES: Basic black goes with everything. Make sure they are comfortable. Always make sure your shoes are polished and well maintained. BELTS AND SOCKS: Your belt should match your shoes. Socks should match your shoes.
To Do Tips for the Ladies JACKETS: Choose a conservative style jacket in a solid, basic color. Black always looks good. SKIRTS: Buy the skirt that goes with the jacket, OR choose a skirt that matches the jacket. Long, flowy skirts can look great for interpretation categories. No short skirts!!! Skirts should be no higher than 1" above the knees. BLOUSES: Use this as an opportunity to add a touch of color under your suit. (Remember that blouses are an inexpensive way to change the look of an outfit). Be sure the blouse is not too low cut. Be conservative. SHOES: Stick with a medium (2" - 2.5") heel. Stay away from boots and really thick, clunky heels and flats. Black, navy, or dark colors that match your suit work best. No white or cream colored shoes. Closed toed shoes are a must! No toes should be showing! Avoid strappy shoes. Straps are distracting. STOCKINGS: Always wear nylon stockings, and keep lots of extras on hand. Nylons should either be bare in color or should match your suit color. (Nylons should never be darker than your hemline). JEWELRY: Keep jewelry choices conservative – it should compliment/accent your attire, not distract us. Earrings should not dangle. Necklaces should not distract.
Womens Shoes NoYes!
Personal Appearance To Dos HAIR - Keep it out of your face! Gentlemen:This may mean getting a hair cut Ladies: Tie your hair back off your face NEATLY and TIGHTLY. Use bobby pins to keep your hair tight and always out of your face. This is the difference between looking ready to perform versus looking like you just got off the bus. FACE – Let us see your expressions Gentlemen:Clean shaven. Ladies:Just like if you were performing on TV or in a play, make-up should be worn, but keep colors and amount conservative.
What NOT To Wear GENTLEMEN Distracting neck ties Light colored socks with a dark suit Un-shaven face LADIES Open-toed shoes Low-cut blouse Short skirts Bold fingernail polish Loose hair BOTH Clothes that are too tight OR too loose Distracting jewelry Hair in your eyes
