Although spring 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 by the middle of November to ensure a timely delivery.
All dancers will be measured for their costumes in class during the first week of November. Please be sure that your dancer is present during this time and in proper studio dancewear in order to be measured accurately. If your dancer is not present please stop at the front desk immediately before your next class to be measured.
We will be choosing costumes from the most reputable companies with the best merchandise, customer service and on time delivery. In addition, our staff will select 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. If your child’s measurements equal the costume company’s size equivalent but you/we are unhappy with the way the costume fits and wish to change the size, we will exchange the costume for the proper size.
All costumes and accessories will be distributed well in advance of our dress rehearsals with complete information regarding the performance. We will return with our costumes and a Parent to review Recital Protocol in mid April.
Although we will not begin actual choreography for our Spring Performance until approx. February, it is important that all dancers attend their classes on a regular basis unless they are ill. By being a participant in our performance, we ask that you do not miss any classes during April and May.
1. Full payment for costume/s is due no later than October 15.
2. 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.
3. Payments may be made at the studio Monday through Friday from 4:00-9:00 PM and Saturday from 9:00-1:00 PM. Or you may mail your payment to the studio at 3339 Rt. 94 Suite 10, Hamburg, NJ 07419
4. We will NOT order a costume for any dancer who has not made the costume payment by November 15.
5. There will be an additional fee of $20.00 for all costumes ordered after January 1.
