Plus extra admin costs and rental of rehearsal space.

DANCE FAQS

Dance Attire

You are responsible for providing your dancer with proper dance clothing and footwear for class. This includes tap shoes for tap classes, and ballet shoes for ballet classes. Come dressed to move - stretchy clothing is ideal, particularly body suit and tights. For hip hop classes running shoes are fine. Baton classes: you must purchase a baton that fits your dancer. We can supply one if that makes it easier. Cost will be whatever the going rate is at the time, probably about $35.

 

Costumes

Costumes are required for participation in competitions, parades, and in the year-end show/recital in June. We encourage all students to participate. 

Most of the time you will have the option to rent. Rental price is $15 per full costume, and you can use it for all performances and photos for the season. There may be an option to purchase in some cases.

We make an effort to keep costume costs down to $45 - $80 per dancer per dance. Some could be a bit more or cheaper. 

Most of our costumes are purchased from a costume company.
It is the teacher's choice whether you will be expected to find or sew your own costume, rent from the studio, buy one on your own that the teacher has chosen, or buy one that the teacher has purchased. In 2022 - 23 over 90% of costumes were available for rent.
