ALL STARS Dance Performances, Recital & Other Fees
ALL STARS focuses on providing opportunities for our dancers to perform, including our very youngest and beginner classes.
Every performance gives them an opportunity to shine, and most importantly, and to learn from mistakes prior to our year-end recital. We believe that through performance our dancers will grow in self-confidence and maturity.
★ Community Events: As often as possible, students will be invited to participate in various local presentations that sometimes may require additional costumes or accessories, but mostly consists of class uniform with borrowed accessories— participation is optional. Their is NO participation fee for these performances.
★ An ALL STARS Nutcracker: All students are invited to participate in the ALL STARS version of the Nutcracker.
Auditions are held for the main character parts. Audition dates, requirements, and cast fees are posted at the studio in September.
An annual fundraiser helps provide a good amount of the costumes; however, some classes may need to put together their own. There is a non-refundable $25 participation fee per student, due October 15. Nutcracker tickets go on sale October 15th and range between $12- $20 depending on the venue.
★ Spring Recital: The Spring Recital is a grand show in a full functioning theatre, giving our students an amazing performance experience. Students are expected to participate in the recital, thus routines will be affected by their absence. However, participation is optional. If for any reason the student will not be participating in the recital, please notify us by Oct 15th.
1) Costume Fees: The non-refundable costume cost is $80 per class. Changes in a student’s schedule can result in a change of costume and additional costume fees (combo classes will sometimes perform both styles, but will have only one costume). Costumes are to be paid on October 1, and no later than November 15 . Deposits toward costume balances may be paid at any time prior to the due date. Costumes will NOT be ordered without payment and will not be released if there is any account balance. Costumes ordered after Nov 17, will incur in a $15 late processing fee to cover shipping and handling charges.
Costume orders are non-refundable: Once ordered, costumes are non-refundable and non-transferable. A student that withdraws from a class after purchasing a costume may pick it up before the end of June. Costumes not picked-up by June 30th will be considered a donation to the school.
2) Spring Recital Fee: A non-refundable $25 recital fee per student due January 15. Spring show tickets go on sale March 1st and range between $22-$28 depending on the venue. The recital fee and ticket sales help cover the cost of the auditorium, light, sound & stage technicians, ushers, props, teachers’ wages and all the other magic involved in bringing you an amazing show, and giving our students the experience of a complete production.
★ Fundraising: There may be some fundraising events during the year to help cover show props, rehearsal fees, and other additional expenses incurred in providing quality experience for our students and audience, and studio equipment, and maintenance. Please participate as much as possible to help these dancers’ dreams come true and help ALL STARS grow..
★ Special Workshops and Dance Conventions: ASPA may offer students an opportunity to take Master Classes and Workshops at ALL STARS and/or at outside venues, during the year. These are optional. Workshops and hotel costs (if any) are paid for by the students.
