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. The 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 will have one costume per class. Class change requests may need prior teacher approval.
Payment Due Date: Costumes are to be paid in full by October 1. Deposits towards 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. This 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: There are no costume refunds for dropped classes, withdrawals from the studio, termination by MSDA or decisions not to participate in recital. A student that withdraws from a class after purchasing a costume may pick up the costume May 15-20, 2023. Costumes left after this designated pickup timeframe will be donated.
Late Class Changes: To ensure proper costume orders, class changes may result in additional costume fees. Private lessons may be required for late registrants; this will be at the teacher’s discretion.
