Yes! Please review the following important details about recital costumes.
Costume Fees: Costume amounts are approximate and subject to change. Changes in a student’s schedule can result in a change of costume and costume fees. Costume amount includes costume, tights and tax.
Combo classes will perform both tap and ballet numbers in the recital, but will have only one costume. Exception is the 2.5-3.5 combo which will perform only a ballet number.
Students enrolled in multiple levels of ballet classes may have more than one recital costume. Therefore, more than one costume fee may be applied to the account.
Mommy & Me, Pre-Pointe, and Tumbling classes do not participate in the recital and will not have a costume charge.
Male dancers in co-ed classes will not have a costume ordered or billed. The studio will discuss with the dancer’s parent what attire is to be worn for performance.
All other classes (including Acro) will have one costume per class. After the Class Drop/Add period ends (See Studio Important Dates), dancers who wish to change classes must purchase an additional costume. Change requests may need prior teacher approval.
Payment Due Date: Costumes are to be paid-in-full by October 31. A late fee will be applied after this date. Deposits toward costume balances may be paid at any time prior to the due date.
E-payment Accounts: Fees for your dancer’s recital costumes will be charged to the card or bank account you have on file unless you have set up a different payment arrangement with the office manager. Costume fees will be drafted mid-October.
Costume Hand Out: Dancers will receive their costume(s) during our Spring Parent Observation Week. (See Studio Important Dates). Parent Observation week is a great opportunity to see your dancer in their costume for the first time. Don’t forget to bring your camera! Accounts must be up-to-date and in good standing prior to receiving your dancer’s costume.
Refunds: Starting November 1, costumes are non-refundable and non-transferable. A student that withdraws from a class or the studio after purchasing a costume may pick up the costume mid-June.(See Studio Important Dates). Costumes left after this designated pick-up timeframe will be donated.
Late Class Changes: To ensure proper costume orders, class changes will not be allowed after mid-November(See Studio Important Dates). Dancers wishing to change classes after the Class Drop/Add period ends (but before the New Student Enrollment ends – early January) must have the instructor’s permission and must purchase an additional costume. Private lessons may be required for late registrants; this will be at the teacher’s discretion.
