Recital Fees and Additional Information

  • The recital fee is $35 per family due in early May. Upon payment of all fees, families will receive a special code to be used to purchase recital tickets online.
  • Because of show length, Performing Arts Dance Academy reserves the right to strictly limit the number of solos and duets during our recital. Rules and restrictions must be applied to ensure the most qualified dancers perform in solo numbers:
    • Dancer must be at the intermediate/advanced level of training in their subject.
    • Dancer must be actively registered in two or more classes.
    • Non-seniors must be studying ballet at least one a week.
    • Dancer must have outstanding attendance.
    • Dancer must have approval by teacher and director.
    • Due to show length, twelfth grade students are preferred.
    • Trios and quartets must follow all rules, with the exception of the third.

      • Guarantees six half hour rehearsals or equivalent time

Costume Fees

  • Costume deposits are $50 per costume, payable at any time before November 15. The school must be notified in writing by January 1 if your dancer will not be finishing out the year and does not intend to be a part of the year-end performance. Otherwise, costumes will be ordered and you will be responsible for costume fees.
  • Costume balances are due in April, as is the total costumer cost (generally between $65 and $125), minus the initial $50 deposit. Total costume costs include the costume, tights, gloves, trims, bows, extra sequins, headpieces, special shoes, small props, etc.
  • Alterations are the responsibility of the school; however, you may be asked to perform minor strap sewing or other slight adjustments.
