COSTUMES

Costume bags will be sent home with dancers the last week of classes (May 28 to June 3).  Please check the spreadsheet below (which is in the show order) and make sure you have all the items you personally need to provide. 

The majority of costumes are yours to keep after the show. We would like to hold on to the following costumes so that they can be used again in the future if possible! 

  • Composition 2 (chess)

  • Ballet 3 (tetris)

  • Ballet 4 (musical chairs)

  • Hip hop 3 - black cargos only (Mario)

Those who are turning in costumes after the show, please leave them in the labeled garment bag with dancer's name.  Others who do not wish to keep their costumes or garment bags can do this as well.
