Costume Payments & Care

Costume Payments

All classes participate in the recital excluding dance with me & flip with me. Recital costume prices are outlined on the class schedule. Next to each class you will see either an S, P1 or P2. This designates the price of the class recital costume.

Recital costume payments are due November 15th. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE COSTUME PAYMENT WILL NOT SHOW AS DUE UNTIL NOVEMBER 15TH WHEN VIEWING YOUR ACCOUNT ONLINE. TO PAY PRIOR TO THE 15TH, PLEASE SEE THE FRONT DESK.

Costume payments will not be made automatically similar to tuition auto payments. Please access your online account or see the front desk to make the costume payment.

General Care

We recommend that you label all costumes, shoes, accessories, and tights with your child’s name. Place the costumes in a garment bag with your child’s name on the outside. Pack accessories in a clear plastic bag (labeled with your child’s name). Hats should be stored in a hatbox or similar container to prevent damage. Press all costumes prior to the dress rehearsal and the performance. Please do not wash costumes in your washing machine; dry clean them only (after the recital).

Remove any tags that could hang out of the costume.

Many costumes come with headpieces or hats. We will determine how the headpieces will be worn at picture day.

Costumes with Fringe

You will notice a string at the bottom of most fringe skirts or trim, which is to keep the fringe from getting tangled before pictures or performance. Please do not pull the string until picture day. After that date, please store fringe skirts on a hanger to keep them from getting tangled.

Ironing

We do not recommend using a traditional iron when pressing costumes. Silks can burn, sequins can melt, and fabric colors may change. Please use only a steamer. Steam costumes with caution because of glues that may have been used to attach appliqués and/or trim.

NOTE: To ensure that costumes do not get damaged, students should not wear their costumes, accessories, or tights prior to the picture day, dress rehearsal, or performance.
