UPDATED: Recital Costume Information!

Recital Costume Update

We are pleased to report that we are 99% done with measuring all DAU students and we have charged accounts.  Please see below for a comprehensive update on recital costumes:

  • Dance Academy USA will be taking care of all    measurements and ordering of costumes.
  • Measurements were done in class over the last few weeks. If your child did not get measured, please stop by the office and we can help you. We will also be reaching out to those families this week as well.
  • The office staff is adding an extra inch to all girth measurements given recital is still seven months off.
  • Sizing will be done by: the computer (generated from class measurements); the costume company size charts; and judgment calls by DAU Staff. We are sensitive to ordering the right size and are taking all possible precautions to ensure the best possible result. Ordering is done early so that in the event we do have some sizing issues (which we always do), we have enough time to react before June.
  • You will receive an email in the next week with the following; a picture of the costume, the costume worksheet, price of the costume (costumes will range from $65 to $110 not including tax), and any additional costume accessories you will be needing.
  • This email will serve as an “Opt Out” notification. In other words, we will assume your child will be performing in recital and therefore require a costume unless we hear from you to the contrary. 99.9% of all students perform in the recital yearly. Recital is not an optionally event—and very important to complete the learning experience and growth of our dancers.
  • Hip Hop classes should expect a $25 costume fee as we order special t-shirts for those classes.
  • Adult classes to be determined by the teacher after discussion with students.
  • Leaps and Turns and any other Technique classes will not be participating in recital.
  • Costumes will start arriving by roughly April, 2016.
  • Upon arrival, costumes will be handed out in class, and then, dancers will try them-on to ensure no sizing issues.
  • Dress rehearsal is June 16th to 17th at the California Theater.
  • Recitals are June 17th through the 19th at the California Theater – it’s a BEAUTIFUL theater!

Please let us know if you have any questions, we are here to help.
