Costume fees are due by March 15th, 2021. A late fee will be charged after the due date for all payments not received.
All students in performing classes will require one costume per class they attend. For example, if you take one ballet class and one jazz class, you will need two costumes. All costumes will be ordered for you and are yours to take home after the recital.
Costumes will be distributed in class at the teacher’s discretion after costumes have arrived and payment is complete.
It is the students’/parents’ responsibility to ensure care for all costumes pre-show and to transport them to the performance.
Alterations to costumes are the dancer’s responsibility.
Costumes are to be worn during dress rehearsal and will leave with the dancers.
After the performance, it is the students’/parents’ responsibility to take home any purchased costumes.
All costume pieces (and other belongings) should be labeled with the dancer’s names.
All costume fees are in addition to recital fees.

Chaperones and Backstage Info.
During rehearsals, due to the small number of students practicing, additional chaperones will not be required. Only performers will be allowed in the building during dress rehearsal/picture day. There will be chaperones for each class on performance day. If you are interested in chaperoning the Spring Recital please contract the front desk. Any concerns regarding the care of the children may be brought to the front desk before the date of the performance. Any parent who cannot respect this policy for any reason may be asked to withdraw their child from the show.

Please wear ACBA warm ups or a ACBA shirt with moveable dance clothes.
