No Jewelry is allowed. — Earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and all other visible body jewelry must be removed prior to performances. Hair bands or clips should match natural hair color or be black or clear.
Hair that is collar length and longer (girls and boys) needs to be pulled back. Traditionally, girls have worn their hair in a a French Braid and boys have worn a ponytail.
Please note that some contests and parades have set dress and appearance codes (i.e. hair color and style) that are a part of judging and/or acceptance into that event beyond NKSD Board policy. These situations will be addressed accordingly.
