Usually varies between $60 and $150 for more elaborate tu-tus and costumes.
Recitals & Shows:
We have two shows per year. One winter show in December that is less formal and simply for fun. We also have a large recital in June that is a big production with costumes, make-up, lighting, and more!
Winter Show Participation Fee: Approximately $25 (paid in October of that dance year)
June Recital Participation Fee: Approximately $85 (paid in April of that dance year)
A flat fee will be requested for those participating in the winter show and annual recital (not required but recommended). These costs cover the stage rental, rehearsal space, printed programs, audio-visual equipment, audio-visual technicians, janitorial personnel, t-shirts for the participating dancers and much more.
Dance Shoes and Apparel:
Most students need one pair of shoes per class, a couple pair of tights, and one or two leotards (or similar dance appropriate attire).
Ballet shoes – $20
Tap shoes – $30 – $50
Jazz shoes – $30
Leotard – $20
Tights (generally a couple pair are useful) – $10 / pair
