Recital Costume Picture Dates

Each class will have a scheduled day and time to take their recital costume picture. This schedule will be posted in March. Pictures days will take place in April & May.


Recital Costume Arrival

All Recital Costumes have been ordered and will be arriving in the next few months.  Once the costumes arrive, our team checks each costume to make sure it has everything, puts the costume on a hanger and into a garment bag, adds the tights & camisole (if ordered), and labels it for each dancer. 


How will you know when your costume arrives?

  • When your child’s costume has arrived, you will receive an email from us letting you know it is at the studio and ready for pick up.  Please note that an adult must come and sign off for the costume.


What do I do if I didn’t order tights?

If you didn’t order tights when you ordered your costume (all Pre, Level I, and Level II costumes receive tights automatically!), you can purchase them at The Dance Bag in McHenry Village.  All dancers need the same style, brand, and color tights for recital.
