Recital Participation Requirements:
· Students purchase a costume for each class that will perform. We spend many hours determining the correct costumes for each class. They are always high quality and age-appropriate. Preschool students will need one costume; all other students will need one costume for each participating Recreational class they are in. (A list of participating classes is attached.) The cost of the costume is TBD and will be divided into 2 payments of TBD each due 1/17/21 and 2/1/21*. Hip Hop & Drill Team classes pay TBD for a costume to be worn with their own jazz or sweatpants which is due 1/17/21. Recital costumes will be ordered right away. Once bulk orders are made, costume companies charge additional shipping and late fees for supplemental orders. An additional fee of $20.00 will be charged for each recital costume not paid in full by 2/1/21. Costume manufacturers do not accept cancellations or offer refunds; therefore our studio does not refund costume deposits. Costumes do not include tights or shoes.
· Students pay a recital fee of $TBD per individual or $TBD per family which is due on or before 3/1/21. This fee helps defray the cost of the venue, custodial staff, audio/visual techs, stage hands and additional staff which the venue requires. Recital fees are non-refundable.
· Student attendance is mandatory during the spring while the focus is on choreography and the development of the dances.
· Students must attend the mandatory dress rehearsal which will take place at TBD location.
