Costume Ordering for June 2016 Recitals:
Costumes for recitals average anywhere from $55 - $85 each and are purchased
from companies that professionally make them. These companies are also
providing costumes for other dance studios throughout the United States who
have their recitals about the same time of year as us. It is of utmost importance
that our costume orders are placed early enough to get all of the costumes back
in time for dress rehearsals/recitals. Depending on the costume style, quantity
and sizes ordered, some costumes come in sooner than others, but last year we
had costumes that were ordered in January that did not arrive until beginning of
June! In an effort to avoid that again this year, costume orders will need to be
placed by December 28, 2015 before 2pm with all costume prices increasing by
$10 after this date and time. The price increase covers the additional costs
associated with placing a second and smaller costume order..
Remember to pay for your class and your class costume at the same time at www.SDRecConnect.com
It is important to remember that purchasing a costume does not guarantee a
dancer will perform in recitals. They must attend classes regularly throughout
the Spring Semester in order to be prepared to perform onstage in June. Dance,
like sports, is a team activity. Regular attendance and practice help everyone in
the class to shine on recital day!
We are currently at work putting the Dress rehearsal and performance schedule for 2016 recitals together. We should have all that information completed and uploaded by mid April, 2016.
