Costuming for the December Holiday Show & May Recital
All students in recital classes are required to dance/tumble in both the Holiday Show & the May Recital.
The costume fees for both the December Holiday Show and the May Recital pay for the dancer’s costume(s), tights and accessories which are chosen by the studio & the total amount is due as agreed.
If a costume doesn’t fit, exchange is sometimes possible if the costume is still available & time allows us to do the exchange. The additional cost to parents is $20 for shipping/handling.
Arrangements and cost of costume alterations is the responsibility of the student’s parents/guardian.
Costumes costs is $45 for the December Holiday show. The cost is $75 each for the May Recital for classes performing 1 routine and $90 for each combo class performing 2 routines in the May Recital.
The Holiday Show costume fee is divided into 4 payments, due in Aug.-Nov. unless other arrangements are made.
The May Recital costume fee is divided into 5 payments due in Aug.-Dec. unless other arrangements are made.
A student enrolling after Oct. 30th is not guaranteed participation in the December Holiday show.
Enrollment after Jan. 1 potentially compromises participating in the May Recital. Participation will be based on costume availability & submission of full costume payment.
Recital Fee & Other Recital Related Matters
A recital fee of $60/1st student in a family & $18 for each additional recital t-shirt: ½ is due by Winter Break and ½ is due by Spring Break which will help offset auditorium expenses for both our Holiday and May recitals. For this fee, each family will receive a May recital DVD, 1 recital t-shirt and a good luck ad in our May recital program.
Tickets for the Holiday Show will cost $6.00 and tickets for the May recital will cost $12.00 each.
Attendance at the May Recital dress rehearsal is mandatory for a student to be able to participate in Recital.
A student who misses 2 classes in Feb-May without our advance approval will be removed from the Recital number for which they miss the 2 classes. Parents need to notify the office of extenuating circumstances, a mandatory school activity that the student is required to participate in or sickness, both of which could excuse the absences.
We have a professional photographer take pictures of every routine sometime in the Spring-taking both individual and group pictures. Being in these photos is mandatory but parents are not required to purchase pictures.
