Sample Recital Costumes
Many classes will be trying on samples of their recital costumes over the next week.  Please plan for your dancer to wear a leotard and tights or other types of fitted dancewear (without attached skirts) to class if at all possible.  This will make it easier for the dancers to try the costumes on over their dancewear instead of needing to change out of bulky clothing.  We appreciate your help with this!  Boys in some of the tap/jazz or tap/ballet classes will be trying on pants this week and can use the restroom to try those on.  Boys only classes on Tuesday night with Bruce will be trying on their costume pieces at a later date.

Tights and Costume Information

Final costume payments of $50- are due Dec 15th from dancers that are in classes with two recital costumes — 1 1/4 hour length classes and our 7th-9th and 8th-12th grade tap/jazz classes.

Costumes will be ordered mid December for those dancer’s that have their account up to date.  Please call the office if you need to make payment arrangements for any outstanding balances.

Tight order forms will be passed out in class in December.  Please return to the studio by December 16th to assure the correct size tights are ordered for your dancer.  The cost of tights is included in your costume payments.  If you would like to order your tights online please click HERE.
