Frequently Asked About Info

Costumes  are ordered in October and fees cannot be refunded. Costume Fee's are due October 1st.  They are handed out in the spring during Parent Visitation week during your class time. We measure your child in October.   We add 2 inches all around for growing room.  We then fit your child’s measurements into the company’s size chart.  Costumes are not made specifically for your child!  If you feel like 2 inches will not be enough growing room, you need to let your teacher know.  You are responsible for any alterations.  


Recital Fees   The Recital Fee includes approximately 5 tickets on the floor level, 1 program book, recital t-shirt, trophy and a digital recital video.  The Recital Fee will be charged January 15.  There is a small fee for extra tickets. We do not offer refunds for the Recital Fees.

Ticket Packets   All accounts must be paid in full to receive your Ticket Packet.  Only cash will be accepted after May 1st. You will draw for your reserved seats on the floor 2 weeks before the recital and receive your ticket packet at the same time. If you need handicap seats, let the office know. The packet will include everything you will need to know concerning the rehearsal and recital.   It will contain:


*A Backstage Pass - For your child’s safety, you must wear this pass recital day or you WILL NOT be allowed backstage to bring or pick up your child.  {You may go backstage during dress rehearsal.  You will be dressing her that day} We have dressers who will dress your child the day of the recital so you can sit with your family and enjoy the show!  You are only allowed backstage before the show, during intermission and after the show if you are wearing your Backstage Pass.

*1 Program Ticket – You will receive 1 program ticket to exchange for a complimentary program the day of the recital in the lobby of the River Center.  If you would like more programs, you will need to pre-order them by filling out a form given to you at the spring Parent Visitation.

*Extra Tickets – Ask when you pick up your Ticket Packet.

*Letters – These letters will tell you what dressing room your child will change in, a map of the backstage area, what to pack and what time to be at dress rehearsal and the recital.


Program pictures are optional.  However, if you choose to put your child’s picture ad in the annual recital program, you must pay for that picture.  We take pictures on 2 separate weekends in the spring by appointments through our own photography business, Chi Foto.  You choose the picture or pictures that you would like to be in the program.  You are not obligated to purchase any packages and there is no sitting fee. 

*There are no “make-up” picture dates if you miss your appointment.
