Most of the costumes for our dancers for their final end of year performance are provided by our dance school. There is a hire fee per costume of $20 a costume to prevent cost blow outs and also we do this rather than bundle costume fees into the weekly fee.
We think it is important to provide appropriate attire for the children in our dance school, you won’t find little kids in skimpy or ‘sexy’ clothing at our concerts. We think it is really important at our school to allow kids to be kids, we fight for their childhood even if they want to ‘grow up’ and wear ‘adult’ costumes.
As the students get older the outfits will get tighter, as dance is at it’s core about the use of the body and so you need to see our more skilled dancer’s bodies, but we still aim to provide outfits that are appropriate.
