We noticed that there is some confusion regarding the recital payments. Most studios hit you with the total cost upfront in November or December, and those costs are usually $200 or better and do not include tickets to the performance, just check around. We on the other hand try to make it a little more affordable and easier on the wallet by setting up 4 equal payments during the dance season.
The first payment was in October, which was $40. This $40 payment allows us to order your child's costume, which you get to keep even if they do not perform in the recital.
The 2nd payment of $40 allows us to pay the deposit on the performance hall and order awards, t-shirts, etc. for the dancers. This payment will be due by the end of January.
The final and 3rd payment of $40 covers instructional costs as well as the final payment for the recital venue plus 2 tickets for you to attend the recital.
Our total recital package is $120.00, which is quite reasonable.
I apologize to anyone who did not understand this when they signed up this year and we will do better next year by spelling it out plainly in our registration packet.
We truly strive to be a family friendly studio and if there is ever any confusion, questions or suggestions please feel free to talk to any of the staff.
In closing I just want to say have a very wonderful holiday, enjoy your time away from dance, but be prepared to work really hard in the New Year to prepare for recital.
See you after the New Year!
