- Recital costumes are part
of the tuition cost per class. We do our
best to provide your child with a beautiful costume for our recital. We put a lot of effort into making sure the
costume we order for your child is the best we can get.
- Group costumes are not custom made and not made to fit like
street clothes. They may not fit
perfectly when they arrive. There is a
range of sizes for each size we order from the costume company. Four specific measurements are taken in
December to fit your child the best we can. We find the size that closest matches those measurements. Many times the costume will be bigger than
expected due to one or more of the measurements. When the costume arrives in April, there is a
chance it may need alterations. Parents
are responsible for any alterations required; however, please reach out to us
and we would be happy to guide you in this process.
