RECITAL
Our 30th Anniversary Recital is scheduled for Sunday, May 27, 2018 at the Bob Carr Theatre. ALL STUDENTS, EXCEPT FOR LITTLE STARS, ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE RECITAL. The recital starts at 5:00pm and ends at 9pm. If you feel that you or your child can not stay for the entire recital, then, please do not sign them up for it.

RECITAL AGREEMENT
In order to improve the efficiency of the recital, we will be requiring every family to sign a recital agreement. Please come in and sign this Agreement by October 21, 2017. For the safety of your children, ALL STUDENTS MUST REMAIN BACKSTAGE FOR THE ENTIRE SHOW! (Creative Dance, Tumblebear & SOME Hippity Hop students may purchase a ½ price ticket to go into the audience after Act 1. If a ½ price ticket is not purchased, the child will remain backstage with a volunteer during Act 2.) If you have any questions regarding this Agreement, please ask.

RECITAL COSTUMES
We are now taking a deposit of $35 per costume. There is a separate costume for each class that your child takes. THE DEPOSIT IS DUE BY OCTOBER 21st. All recital costumes MUST BE PAID IN FULL BY DECEMBER 14TH, AND we must have a Costume Order Form on file. Please come in and fill out the Costume Order Form by October 21st. Any costumes paid between December 15th & 21st will be charged an extra $5.00 per costume.

The cost for costumes will be $60, per costume, for Creative Dance, Tumblebears, and Hippity Hop and $65, per costume, for all others. Any student who needs an extra-large adult or larger will be charged an extra fee. This fee varies for each costume, so please inquire at the desk. Costumes MUST be ordered during Christmas Break to guarantee delivery in May. Students will be measured for costumes in class Nov. 6th -Nov. 11th. PLEASE DO NOT BE ABSENT! Parents of Creative Dance, Tumblebear and Hippity Hop students should be on hand to go over recital procedures and ask any questions that they may have concerning the recital.
ATTENTION STUDENTS TAKING UNLIMITED CLASSES: You may only perform with the classes of your level or below. You may not participate in a recital dance of a class that is above your ability.

STUDENT COSTUME SIZING
During the week of December 15th- 21st, parents, have the opportunity, to choose their child’s costume size. We will make recommendations based on the style and fabric of the costume, but the final choice will be the parent’s. (Please inquire at the receptionist’s desk.) Any costume that needs to be returned will be subject to a restocking and shipping fee which is determined by each manufacturer. This additional charge will be put on the student’s account. Please keep in mind that any costume that has pants will most likely have to be hemmed. Costume companies usually put a very long pant leg on all costumes to accommodate all students’ leg lengths.
