You may NOT register on the same day as your class. We must have at least 24 hours before your Free class begins. What have you got to lose? Let’s get dancing during our OCTOBER DANCE BLAST!!!
LEGGZ OPEN HOUSE!
It’s BACK! We are going to have an Open House on Sunday, October 14th from 2-5pm. This is so new students can register and get to know the Leggz Family. We will need all assistant teachers there to help, (you will be performing), students who received a performance letter, and a few parent volunteers.
Our 31st Recital is scheduled for Sunday, May 26, 2019 at the Bob Carr Theatre. ALL STUDENTS, EXCEPT FOR LITTLE STARS, ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE RECITAL. The recital starts at 5:00pm and ends at 9pm. If you feel that you or your child can not stay for the entire recital, then, please do not sign them up for it. (3-5 Year old students, have an option to leave during intermission, approximately 7pm)
In order to improve the efficiency of the recital, we will be requiring every family to sign a recital agreement. Please come in and sign this Agreement by October 20, 2018. For the safety of your children, ALL STUDENTS MUST REMAIN BACKSTAGE FOR THE ENTIRE SHOW! (Creative Dance, Tumblebear & SOME Hippity Hop and Tippy Tap students may purchase a ½ price ticket to go into the audience after Act 1. If a ½ price ticket is not purchased, the child will remain backstage with a volunteer during Act 2.) If you have any questions regarding this Agreement, please ask.
STUDENT COSTUME SIZING
During the week of December 17th – 22nd, parents, have the opportunity, to choose their child’s costume size. We will make recommendations based on the style and fabric of the costume, but the final choice will be the parent’s. (Please inquire at the receptionist’s desk.) Any costume that needs to be returned will be subject to a restocking and shipping fee which is determined by each manufacturer. This additional charge will be put on the student’s account. Please keep in mind that any costume that has pants will most likely have to be hemmed. Costume companies usually put a very long pant leg on all costumes to accommodate all students’ leg lengths.
We are now taking a deposit of $35 per costume. There is a separate costume for each class that your child takes. THE DEPOSIT IS DUE BY OCTOBER 20th. All recital costumes MUST BE PAID IN FULL BY DECEMBER 14TH, AND we must have a Costume Order Form on file. Please come in and fill out the Costume Order Form by October 20th. Any costumes, paid between December 16th & 22nd, will be charged an extra $5.00 per costume.
NO COSTUMES WILL BE ORDERED THAT ARE NOT PAID IN FULL BY DECEMBER 22nd!
The cost for costumes will be $60, per costume, for Creative Dance, Tumblebears, Tippy Tap & Hippity Hop and $65, per costume, for all others. Any student who needs an extra-large adult or larger will be charged an extra fee. This fee varies for each costume, so please inquire at the desk. Costumes MUST be ordered during Christmas Break to guarantee delivery in May. Students will be measured for costumes in class Nov. 5th -Nov. 10th. PLEASE DO NOT BE ABSENT! Parents of Creative Dance, Tumblebear, Tippy Tap, and Hippity Hop students should be on hand to go over recital procedures and ask any questions that they may have concerning the recital.
ATTENTION STUDENTS TAKING UNLIMITED CLASSES: You may only perform with the classes of your level or below. You may not participate in a recital dance of a class that is above your ability.
