Attendance is very important for a child to build the self confidence with each step that they learn. Recital routines are started in February. When a child is continually absent it holds up the class from learning their routine. Attendance is recorded each week and trophies are given at the year end recital for perfect attendance. If for any reason your child will not be in class please call the studio ahead of time. Make-ups are available until March 15th. Please speak with the teacher so you can be given the correct days that make-ups are available. Children are put into an age appropriate and level appropriate class for make-ups.

We spend many hours determining the correct costumes for each class. They are always age-appropriate and of the highest quality possible. All students will need one costume for each class they train in. In addition we will order tights at an additional charge to be worn with the costume.
In an effort to ensure that costumes are delivered in time for school photographs and an organized distribution to our students, costume orders are placed during the December holiday break. Costume manufacturers do not accept cancellations or offer refunds; therefore the school does not refund costume deposits.
Deposits are due by November 15th
Costume Balance is Due by February 1st
Parents or guardians accept full responsibility for all expenses, including surcharges and postage for costumes that are ordered late. To ensure that there are no costume problems, students should not wear their costumes, accessories, or tights prior to the photo session or performance.
No refunds will be made if a parent or guardian withdraws a child from the school after costumes have been ordered and prior to the recital. Parent or guardians may pick up purchased costumes at the school at the time of general costume distribution and up to 15 days after the performance. Costumes not picked up after 15 days will be donated to charity.
We recommend that each student’s name be placed in his or her costumes, shoes, accessories, and tights. Place the costumes in a garment bag with your child’s name on the outside. Pack accessories in a clear plastic bag with your child’s name on the bag and on each item. Hats should be stored in a hatbox or similar container to prevent damage. Please do not wash costumes in your washing machine; dry clean them only (after the recital).
There will be a scheduled picture day in June. Each class will receive a schedule with the time their class should be at the studio. Please arrive on time for class pictures so it does not hold up any of the classes.
Arrive in costumes, with hair and make-up done. Each student will take a class picture and individual pictures in each of the costumes that they have for the recital. Pictures can be purchased at a later date.
Participation in the rehearsal is mandatory. The rehearsal allows the students to become familiar with the auditorium surroundings and feel comfortable with their performance, and being onstage. Lighting, music cues, and all other changes for an organized and professional performance are rehearsed so that the students make the best impression possible. We run an organized and timely rehearsal; your help with the process will guarantee a professional production. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled rehearsal time.
The recital offers our students a professionally directed performance that allows them to present to their families and friends the results of a year’s hard work, dedication, and progress.
A big part of the dance training process includes learning through performance. The experience helps build self-esteem, self-assurance, and contributes to a sense of confidence. Although performance opportunities can help prepare some students for a possible career in dance, they also contribute to children’s success in non-dance activities. That onstage experience can result in better in-school presentations, improved social skills, and strong interview skills for future college or job opportunities. The rehearsal process is a tremendous learning experience as well. It helps the children develop retention skills, and by working with their classmates on a group performance, they learn the positive aspects of working as a team to create the best end result.
As the season progresses, additional recital information or updates will be posted on Dance Revolution Inc. website www. DanceRevolutionInc.com and in monthly newsletters, and on the school bulletin board. Make it your responsibility to keep abreast of this important information. Our goal is to make the recital an organized, exciting experience for everyone involved. It’s a team effort; students, their parents, the teachers, and the director are key players in the show’s success.
