Costumes:

Dancers will receive their costumes in their classes starting the week of April 18th.

Teachers will explain how the costume is to be worn and hair done. Dancers in ballet will need clean pink tights and ballet slippers.  Jazz, Modern,Tap, Hip Hop and Contemporary dancers will be given instructions from their teachers as to what else they need to wear. To receive a costume, accounts must be in good standing and outstanding balances must be paid in full.

When you receive the costume:

  1. The teachers will explain how their costume and hair is to be worn for recital.
  2. Take inventory to make sure all pieces are there and keep them out of reach from your child. We cannot order any other costumes or accessories at this last of date.
  3. Try on the costume as soon as you get it to make sure it fits. Even though we take measurements, the costumes sometimes run small or large. If there is a problem with the costume’s fit, let the teacher or office know ASAP.
  4. Do not allow you child to play in their costumes.

Picture Day, Sunday May 1st:

Picture Day is Sunday, May 1st, and will be held at the Studio.

Picture Day is an opportunity to have professional photos of your dancer in costume.   Preorder your photos and book on line at Memory Makers. We felt that last year having families pick their own time slot worked out great. Individual or or group photos can be scheduled through Memory Makers. We will not be doing class photos, but if you want to create a group you may do so in a time slot.

Dancers should arrive in their costumes. If you are doing more than one photo slot please allow enough time in between slots for your child to change into their other costumes. The photographers do not allow parents in the studio with their child. Please make your child aware of this. If this will distress your child, please feel free to skip Picture Day.

Information on how to sign up and pay for and individual photo will be sent out via Constant Contact in March.
