9. Is there a recital at the end of the year?

Yes, all performance classes conclude with an annual showcase.

10. Is there a fee for participating in the showcase?

No. However, there is a rental fee for costumes (see below). Students who have paid all tuition and fees in full and on time will receive one complimentary ticket to the showcase. Dancers in the showcase DO NOT need a ticket to enter the showcase.

11. What is the rental fee for costumes for the end of year showcase?

Most costumes for the annual showcase will be rented through Troy Dance Factory, which saves you and your family from the sometimes daunting costs associated with purchasing performance costumes. Rental costs are $20/costume, and are non-refundable. Participants must also provide a $30 showcase deposit per costume, which will be refunded after the showcase provided all costumes are returned AND undamaged.

12. What else do I need to know?

We don't really have a dress-code, aside from style of shoe required. We ask that you dress for how you want to feel, with ballet and jazz dancers dressing such that alignment can be properly assessed. If you like polka-dotted tights or striped leggings, go for it! Temporary tattoos or trucker hats, be our guest! Hate leotards but cool with tank tops? We totally get it. We strive to ensure individuality is honored, within general expectations of respect for the craft and for those around you, and trust that you get where we're coming from. Please don't hesitate to e-mail, or Facebook message the studio, any questions you have! We don't have a phone because we're only there when we're teaching.
