Costume Deposits:

Sparkles, glitter and sequins galore!  Costume ordering is very exciting for instructors and students.  Your dancer will be measured and their costume(s) will be ordered this fall.  All costume deposits are due at the time of registration, as these fees are not included in the class rates.  Please see the class descriptions to determine how many routines your dancer’s class participates in.  Any remaining costume balances will be due by March 2018*.  Your dancer’s beautiful costume(s) arrive in the spring!

1 routine in the Recital = $25 costume deposit

2 routines in the Recital = $50 costume deposit

3 routines in the Recital = $75 costume deposit

4 routines in the Recital = $100 costume deposit

*Costume balances not paid in full by the due date may result in exclusion from the dance recital, at LPRD discretion.
