Tights, Shoes, Hair, and Makeup Tights 
To ensure that there are no discrepancies in color and style, tights will be available for purchase at the studio. (Note: Having a second pair of tights on hand offers students and parents a great sense of security.) 
Shoes 
Be sure that all shoes are cleaned prior to the recital.
If you purchase dance shoes just before the recital, please break them in (indoors) so that they are pliable and comfortable for the recital. 
Hair and makeup 
Students under the age of 12 are not required to wear makeup for the recital, however a little color on the cheeks and lips is recommended due to the bright stage lights.




Costumes & Recital Fee - Due October 20th
Costume Rental Fee- Due October 20th- Last Day to Register
$30- Ages 2-8      $40- Ages 9+     ** Price is per costume/class** 
We spend many hours selecting the costumes for each class. They are always age- appropriate and of the highest quality possible. Students will need one costume for each class they train in. Costume rentals include all accessories (hats, gloves, etc.)


Recital Fee- Due October 20th
The recital fee is $50 per family. It includes a T-shirt for each dancer. The recital fee goes towards renting the facility, lighting and sound technicians and janitorial staff. The fee is $50 for the family, not per student. 

Costume and Reictal Fee payment is due by the 20th of October by cash, check or credit card. If you are enrolled in our auto pay program for tuition, costume fees are NOT pulled from that card unless you ask the office staff to do so. 



Be Prepared
Planning
The recital isn’t a one-day activity. Gather all changing leotards, tights, accessories, shoes, and makeup several days in advance so you’ll know if something is missing or isn’t right. Make a checklist of your child’s routines, listing the costume, tights, shoes, and any accessories, and refer to it to make sure you have all your supplies before going to the theater.


Dress Rehearsal
Participation in the dress rehearsal is mandatory. Rehearsals will be held in our studio at Expressions Academy. The dress rehearsal allows the students to become familiar with the other children in the show, set changes, music cues and more. This will help ensure a professional show! Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your dancer’s call time. Dancers will wear their dress code for class as well as their recital T Shirt.

Recital Photography, Videos, and T-Shirts-

Class photos on will be taken 15th-17th  at Expressions Academy. Dates and times are subject to change.  After the group photo shoot, students may choose to have solo portraits made in any or all of their costumes. There is no obligation to purchase photos. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your child’s scheduled time since photo shoots tend to run ahead of schedule. Hair and makeup should be done as for a performance.
