  1. Hi! Great Site and hoping that you will help me.
    I am a Mom trying to help my daughter out with her dance classes that she teaches.

    Have you got any great ideas for Four year olds, Candy Cane recital costumes with an $11.00 budget for each???

    It is her first year teaching at this studio and she would LOVE to have the best costumes...of course.
    Thanks much!

  2. If you are looking for costuming that is not very expense, looked for red & white striped tights. The Liberts catalog usually has them. The tights look very cute under a plain simple dance dress, dance skirt, tutu, or plain leotard. Music that always comes to my mind first for candy canes is peppermint twist. Lots of different versions of the song can be researched on ITunes!
