It's Costume Time!

Hello everyone...I know it seems like classes have just begun, but a lot of planning goes into our Spring Shows and it starts with creatively coming up with our show themes and designing or selecting costumes for each class.
 
The Staff is VERY excited about the themes for both our Recital and Ballet Performance.
 
Elite Proudly Presents:
 
Spring Recital 2017
"Hooray for Hollywood"
 
*This show will follow the same format as years past and will include all our Jazz, Hip Hop,Tap & Company classes.
 
 
Ballet Performance 2017
"Ragtime"
 
*This performance will be around 1 hour and will only include 17 Ballet classes, age Kindergarten and up.
 
 
**Please mark RECITAL WEEK on your calendars** Monday, June 19 th  - Saturday, June 24 th - Recital week will be at Liberty High School Auditorium and include rehearsals and shows for both the Ballet Performance and Spring Recital.
 
We will be sending out a more detailed rehearsal and show schedule in April.  (**We are aware that Beaverton School District gets out on Wednesday, June 21st.  We will be planning our rehearsal schedules accordingly.)
 
Back to COSTUMES--
 
In order to get everything ordered and delivered on time, costume fees are due by November 18th Your costume fee includes shipping and accessories and since you are purchasing the costume it is yours to keep after the recitals!  The only additional cost is tights.  Specifics on class tights will be given out in the spring after costumes have been handed out. 
 
This week we will begin measuring our ballet dancers for their costumes. Since our ballet costumes are custom made dancer measurements must be forwarded to our costume designer in the next few weeks.

After Thanksgiving Break our Jazz, Hip Hop, and Tap dancers will be measured during their class time.  Costumes are ordered in December and shipped to us by April.  Once they arrive, they will be handed out in class and dancers will be able to take them home along with instructions on fitting, alterations and accessories. 
 
IMPORTANT:
 
  • All dancers participating in the Spring Shows MUST purchase the class costume.
     
  • Once costumes are ordered there will be no refunds. Sorry, no exceptions.
     
  • Costume fees not received by November 18th will be charged a $20.00 late fee.
     
  • If you are not planning on participating in the spring recital, please email us at info@elitedancestudio.org so you are not charged a costume or late fee.
If you are not paying through the online PayPal service, please know that costume fees need to be paid on a separate check from monthly tuition and mark costume fee on the memo line.  (Costume fees cannot be deducted thru Elite's EFT service.) 
 
As always, we will post pictures of all the class costumes in our lobby after Winter Break...the dancers love this tradition!
