General Guidelines*

Please arrive on time and have kids sit with their group until their dance is over. 

Check with me once you arrive at the location.* (if I am not coming, report to your group leader)

Parents are responsible to get the kids ready(including make up).If you have questions on how to do the hair or how to wear the costume, ornaments, please ask me when you come for class.* I can also arrange helpers if needed(if available)

Use the bathroom if needed before getting ready.*

Do Henna for hands if needed - no alta or red marker allowed. *You must hand wash costume before returning if stained.

It is our custom not to wear shoes/sandals when you are wearing ghungroo.* Please note, kids who are ready will be given the bells(talk to me if any questions regarding that ).  Usually done when kids are 8/9 year old and minimum 2-3 years of learning.

Do the 'namaskar' on the stage /backstage before you start performing.*

I highly recommend you stay in auditorium to watch other kid's programs to encourage them.
