We have extended the Recital costume deposits due date to December 1st 2022 due to the Thanksgiving break. There is a $50.00 deposit per costume and must be CASH or CHECK only. Please do not combine costume deposits with monthly tuition. A $10.00 late fee per costume will be added if paid after the extended due date. Once an order is placed, costumes are non-refundable and you will be responsible for the balance due on the costumes that are ordered, even if the student drops a class.

During the month of December, we will be measuring and sizing students for recital costumes. The cost for costumes will range from $68.00 – $90.00, depending on the type of costume ordered and age group of the class. We do try to allow for some growth, but each company is different and all we have to go by is a size chart that is provided by each individual company. Invoices for the balance of costumes will go out in February.

Students that are participating in our annual end of the year recital will be required to pay a mandatory Recital Fee in the amount of $40.00 per student and a discounted rate of $50.00 for families who have more than one student dancing in the recital. The recital fee will include an edited video download link for ALL THREE SHOWS, free admission for the dancer to sit in the audience and enjoy the show and one appreciation medal per student. If the dancer is 3yrs and under they must sit on the lap of a parent/guardian. Miss Tanya’s School of Dance is one of the only studios in the area that allow students to sit with their families in the auditorium to watch the show, instead of remaining backstage or in a cafeteria. Invoice will be emailed in December and due in late January.

The video company that we have hired to professionally video all three shows is Media Creations. We have contacted numerous video companies and all are now only doing digital video recording and this company came highly recommended and had the best price. Media Creations will also offer additional items once the initial media package is purchased through the recital fee, such as a DVD’s, Blu-rays, USB’s and individual routines at discounted prices that will be on their order form, which will be in the recital packet emailed in May.

No one will be allowed to record the recital and no flash photography will be allowed. Each show will have staff members that will be monitoring the audience and we kindly ask that you abide by this rule. Invoices will be emailed out in January and payments will be due in February. Payment is cash or check only.

Photos by Jenn will be our official photographer for the recital. She will be at both Dress rehearsals for individual photos. More information will be given out in the recital packet.

Instructors will begin to teach recital routines in the month of February and make-up classes will not be allowed. Instructors will be videotaping the entire class for educational purposes ONLY when teaching recital routines. Videos are used as a teaching tool for students to see correct formations, choreography and musicality. Recital videos will NEVER be posted on social media, so we ask that students and parents do not post any videos on social media.
