Competition Team & Performance Company Costuming

Procedure & List

Costuming has already been established for the 2017/18 dance season. Please see our FAQs section (Competition Team & Performance Company) for a refresher.

June Recital 2018 Costuming

Procedure

If you are in a performing recreational, select technique, Competition Team and/or Performance Company class, you will be performing in the June Recital. (If you are unsure on whether your class is performing, please contact admin at gottadancestudioandco@gmail.com.) This also means that you will need a costume. Last year, the studio went through Costume Manager, which required parents to order from their end. Unfortunately, Costume Manager is no longer; therefore, the studio is returning to the old-school way of ordering costumes–parents are invoiced and we size and order for you.

We added costume amount(s) to your Customer Portal account February 2-5. Costume totals are no more than $70. When we invoiced, we took into account the cost of the costume, shipping and the time that goes into measuring, sizing based on different catalog/source measurements, ordering, distributing and exchanges. Costuming is an arduous process (as some of you may have gathered from last year). We thank you for your patience and understanding throughout the entire process. (Also, as an important side note, costuming does NOT include dance shoes or tights.)

Payment for costumes is due by March 1. If we do not receive payment before then, we will automatically process the costume amount with March’s tuition amount.

If for some reason you cannot pay for your costume on the 1st, unfortunately, we cannot order your costume with the group. Please be aware that additional costs may apply if we have to order your costume at a later date. Not only, but the risk of your costume not arriving in time for recital photos (Date TBD) and/or the recital itself increase drastically. Also note that costume payments are non-refundable.

Thanks for your support! We are so EXCITED to put on an AMAZING show!
