June Costuming

Costume Manager Explained

Most costumes for our June Recital will be purchased through Costume Manager. This program is NEW for GDSC, so please have patience with the ordering process. We are using this company to streamline the invoicing/sizing process and to avoid costume flat fees, which have often been perceived as unfair due to price differences in costumes. You can get an in-depth explanation on why we chose this company here.  

For instructions on how to size, visit CostumeManager.com and click on "Dancer." You will see a video titled "How to Measure" in the center of the screen. You may also ask for sizing assistance from any one of our GDSC instructors. 

To order, you may call Costume Manager directly at 1-877-632-6234 OR order online. To do so, go to CostumeManager.com and click on "Dancer." You can enter in your Class List ID (find below) and be immediately taken to your class OR in the text box underneath "Or Search by Instructor or studio name," you can type in your class's designated instructor or "Gotta Dance Studio & Company." You will be taken to a screen with a list of Gotta Dance classes that are using Costume Manager as their source of costuming. Click on your class name and you will be prompted to create an account if you have not done so already. Once you're logged in, you will be given instructions that will lead you through the online buying process. GDSC suggests placing orders from a computer. Though Costume Manager is available from a mobile format, some details might be left out depending on what phone you're using. 

Please note: Costume Manager-assigned costumes for select recreational classes will not be available to order until November. For on-time arrival, the deadline to order Costume Manager-assigned costumes is January 31. Depending on your class, costume size and the date in which you placed your order, costumes can cost up to $70. A costume is only required if you and/or your child agree to perform in the June recital. If you and/or your child is planning on performing, please budget in this extra expense. 

For costumes established outside of Costume Manager, the deadline is still being determined--stay tuned.

For current details on June costuming, please see below. Any class that is marked with "TBD" will be updated as soon as the instructor has finalized the costume.
