Paint Dance Questions

What should I wear to the Paint Dance?

White or neon clothes. Your clothes and shoes may get stained, so plan accordingly. If you would like, you can purchase our 18 Pines Paint Dance shirt! As of April 24th, all paint dance shirts have been sold out!

What should I bring with me to the dance?

Bring your student ID and a great attitude!

What is the paint made up of?

The paint is a chalk paint similar to the color run. It is made up of corn starch and food dye.

Is the color powder safe?

Safety is our main priority! The colors are made with high quality cornstarch and food dyes. All materials are 100% FD&C and/or D&C grade and approved by the US FDA. However the paint is not designed for consumption.

Is it harmful if you inhale it?

Although all the materials are food grade we do not recommend inhaling large quantities of color powder. Anyone who has asthma, is allergic to any of the ingredients or has any respiratory issues should exercise caution when participating in color powder events.

Does color powder stain clothing?

Our color powder washes out of most clothing. However, it can stain some materials. 100% cotton clothing is recommended and typical machine washing with stain remover, removes the stains.

Does color powder stain skin or hair?

Just as with clothing we recommend shaking off all excess powder before exposing to water. Normal soap and water should remove color powder from skin and hair. Some color does tend to linger for a few days especially on blonde hair. If you are worried about staining, we recommend applying a moisturizer to skin and coating your hair with a small amount of coconut or olive oil before the event.

What type of music will be played at the dance?

DJ Collegeville Woods will be playing a wide variety of music.

Do I need a ticket to attend the Paint Dance?

No, if you can’t make it to the concert, you don’t need a ticket to come to the paint dance.
