Recital Recording Production Fee: $45.00 per family. Payable to instructor April Bergeron by 2/1/23. All families receive a link to download the professionally recorded and edited Recital.

Costume Deposits:

Sparkles, glitter, and sequins galore!  Costume ordering is 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. Costume balances will be due by February 2022*.  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
