  • Early registration required to secure costume availability and shipping. 

  • Many costumes are supplied as ordered and there are 2 main companies all dance schools use. With supply chain challenges worldwide, we anticipate the need to order costumes early this year to ensure availability, shipping and time for size exchanges as needed. 

  • The sooner you register the better selection of costumes & sizing we have. It gives us time to coordinate, order and ensure stock and arrival dates. 

  • Costume measurements will be taken during class.

  • When costumes arrive, staff will fit costumes and schedule pick up times.

  • Parents will be responsible for storing costume & headpiece until performance day.
