The recital costume deposit will be taken in January. The remaining balance is due upon costume arrival, approximately 10-12 weeks (Mid March). Refunds cannot be given. Unless otherwise stated, costumes are property of the dance family, not the dance studio. Please be sure to keep all costumes and costume accessories organized for shows and performances. We do our best to keep costume costs low. Costumes are usually $50-85 per costume. Again, costumes are purchased and are property of dance families.
Our Annual Recital will take place MAY 25th + 26th 2023 at the HISTORIC MASONIC THEATRE in Clifton Forge, VA.
