- COSTUME DEPOSIT DUE ($60 per class) – 11/14/22
- COSTUME BALANCE DUE (invoice emailed in January) – 2/23/23
A costume deposit of $60 is due by November 14, 2022 for each class your child is in. The balance of the costume is due by February 23, 2023. A 10% late fee will be applied if your payment is not received by the deadline.
Although May/June may seem a long way off, for dance teachers and costume companies it comes all too soon. Costume companies have a deadline on all orders to assure a timely delivery AND costumes are all made to order only. Therefore, costumes for our performance MUST be ordered in December to ensure a timely delivery. All students were measured for their costumes in class in November. We will be choosing costumes from the most reputable companies with the best merchandise, customer service and on time delivery. In addition, our staff has selected costumes that are age appropriate for all dancers in each class and fit with our choreography. Although we do add several inches to allow for growth, every costume company has a different set of sizing guidelines, so your child may, for example, measure in a medium child size costume for one company but a large child size for another.
Recital Costumes range between $75-$120 a piece. After the deposit is made and the costumes are ordered, an invoice will be emailed to you with the balance that is due (balance range between $20-$65). Please note that costumes companies DO NOT DO RETURNS, ONLY EXCHANGES IN SIZE. Therefore, once a costume is ordered, you are liable for the total cost (this includes if a student were to drop/leave a class).
Please note: Costume payments are non-refundable, even in the event that your child chooses not to participate in our performance after costume orders have been placed.
Please hang the costume once you receive it. Make sure it is hung in a safe place away from pets or anything that can damage it. We will not be able to order a new costume if it becomes damaged at home.
