Costume Fees: Costume amounts are approximate and subject to change. Changes in a student’s schedule can result in a change of costume and costume fees. Costume amount includes costume and tax (tights are also included for our younger dancers). For male dancers, the teacher will discuss with the dancer’s parents what attire is to be worn for the performance. All other classes will have one costume per class.
Class drop/add period ends December 17, 2016. Dancers who wish to change classes after that date must purchase an additional costume.
Dancers will receive their costume(s) during our Spring Parent Observation Week. This week is a great opportunity to see your dancer in their costume for the first time and video the recital routine. Please remember we do not allow these videos to be posted on social media.
After December 17th, 2016 costumes are nonrefundable and nontransferable. A student that withdraws from a class after purchasing a costume may pick up the costume between May 1-27, 2017. Costumes not picked up by then will be donated.
Because of how large our dance school has gotten the past few years, we are needing to shift the way we do recital fee and tickets. First, we are going to move to online reserved seating instead of the general admission method. We are excited to implement this because everyone can walk into recital day knowing they have assigned seats and eliminate the lining up for hours to rush in, hiding in the aisles to save seats, and reduce the stress of getting your dancer where they need to be and worrying about whether you will have seats with your family. We are using a reputable company that helps over a thousand dance studios across the US with ticketing their shows. The website is very user friendly and there will be a phone number to call and reserve over the phone as well. There will be forthcoming details about this process including a video tutorial and we will make sure everyone is aware of the date/time tickets will go on sale.
Video-taping and flash photography are prohibited during the productions/recitals, however, you may take video/photos at the dress rehearsals. A professional DVD of the recital will be available for purchase from Colorado Springs Video. Professional photos from the recital will also be available in an online gallery.
How long are the recital performances?
Each performance will be 1.5-2 hrs. The May 19th Showcase will run 2-2.5 hrs.
Will my dancer get to sit in the audience once her/his dance is finished?
For general safety reasons, we insist that all performers are to remain backstage during both the dress rehearsal and recital performances. We have plenty of help backstage to keep your dancers entertained while they wait for their dance.
