Costume Balance 

Costume Balance due April 1 (if your account is set up for autopay, balances will be automatically withdrawn on April 1, unless you notify us prior to that date)

  • Costume balances will be added to your account by March 16. 
  • The balance due also includes accessories. Every attempt was made to select costumes at a reasonable price. Costume production, shipping, handling and taxes all have to be absorbed in the final cost. 
  • If you are paying the costume balance along with your tuition please notate the individual breakdown on the check. 


Attendance

March marks the beginning of dancers learning choreography. 

  • Attendance is important.  It is difficult for the teachers and confusing to the students to stage the class’s routine with partial attendance. We realize that some absences cannot be avoided; however, unless you are sick please make every attempt to attend the classes regularly. 
  • The teacher has the right to limit participation in their choreography if absences are excessive (more than 1 per month in each dance class).


Costumes 

  • Details on tights & changes or additions to the costumes will be posted and emailed as decided. Costumes come in general size ranges and were ordered closest to each students’ measurements, individual adjustments may be necessary. 
  • Exchanges may be possible; however, a $5-$10 return fee will be assessed. This fee is charged by the costume company not UFDA.
  • Please do not allow your children wear their costume until dress rehearsal so it can remain in good condition for the show.  Check that the costume came with all accessories needed and make any alterations needed in advance. 
  •  All costumes have been packaged in bags and will need to be hung and steamed to remove wrinkles.
