September 14 & 15
Thursday: Sept. 14 from 3-8pm

This costume sale can be a good resource for purchasing your solo/duet/trio competition costumes, especially for jazz, lyrical or contemporary routines and possibly young tappers! 

The costumes available at this sale are almost all custom made and already embellished.  The cost is generally $100+, but they do have some for less.  They are high quality costumes in great used condition for less than you would pay to have one of this quality made yourself.  
  • If you are interested in attending, please let me know so we can plan to go together! As of right now, I am planning on going Thursday afternoon and it's best if we can go together if possible.
  • If you are okay with me looking for a costume for your dancer, I can do so, but would prefer for you to be there.
  • Please note! If you go when I'm not there, you will need to approve costumes through me via text first! Some of the costumes may not fit within our studio guidelines!
