Bun Tutorial

Stage Make-Up Tutorial

FYI: If you want to do it right, do it exactly according to the stage make-up video however, if fake lashes don't work for you, you do not need to wear them. Another tip is to line the inside of your eyelids with black liner to make them pop.

VPADC Make-Up Classes

Rehearsals can not be made up. Technique classes can be made up appropriately as follows. Please be sure to stop in with a receptionist and let them know what class you are making up. They are the staff that will cancel out your original absence.
