All Students will need to wear their costumes for PICTURE DAY, DRESS REHEARSAL and PERFORMANCES. Costume payment is mandatory to all students participating in the recital. This amount is charged after each student is enrolled for the Winter/Spring semester and it is not refundable. Costumes will be ordered by the studio and given to each student as the costumes arrive at the studio. Students do not have to return costumes to the studio after the recital. ANY dance attire (except tennis shoes for hip hop) should be purchased at a store specialized in dance attire. Dance items available at store like Target, Walmart, etc. are not suitable for our dance classes or performances. If pink tights are required, please purchase pink ballet tights with NO SEAMS, brand Capezio Transition or Capezio Footed. During picture day, dress rehearsal and performances, students will change into costume in a common area. There will be no private dressing rooms, therefore:
ALL male students must wear a fitted shirt and fitted shorts under their costume.
ALL female students must wear an undergarment. See picture below:
You can purchase the undergarment, as well as pink tights and dance shoes at: Austins Sportswear: 12 E Main St., Champaign, IL 61820 (217) 359-2231 http://www.austinssportswear.com/
Make sure your costume is not used, before the recital date, for any purpose other than the Urbana Fine Arts Center’s picture day, dress rehearsal and recital.
Most ballet costumes will need to be steamed. If you don’t have a steamer, the easiest thing to do is to hang the costume in a bathroom with closed doors and fan off for about 30 minutes, while hot water from a shower is on. You can always turn the fan on later while the door is closed if you don’t want the humid air in your house. Important: DO NOT WET THE COSTUME.
The pictures below show how most of the costumes look like when they arrive and how they should look like after steamed:
Arrive at location wearing your undergarment and pink tights (if pink tights are required as part of your costume). Wear your regular street clothes over your undergarment.
UNDERGARMENT for male students: Fitted shirt, fitted shorts or tights (male ballet students). UNDERGARMENT for female students: Nude or beige color leotard. Please, see picture and information above.
