At Dance Theater of New England we believe that performance is a significant part of a young dancer’s educational experience and a vital extension of the many benefits derived from dance training.  Each class will have one dance and costume in our annual production.

Every dance in the annual production will have its own costume. 
Headpieces are included in the costume package.  Students will be responsible for tights.  Each class will be notified as to specific tights.

Costume payments are paid in 2 installments: 
October 15, and November 15
*Invoices for costumes go out by September 30th
**Company costume balances are due by November 1st
No Costume will be ordered until all costume balances are paid
All payments are nonrefundable once costumes are ordered

Costume Fees
Terrific Twos$60.00
Recreational Costumes$80.00
DTNE Company Costumes$87.00
Recital T-Shirt$20.00
Extended Sizes add$12.00

*There is a 12.00 surcharge for each XXL and XXXL costume (Applies to both child and adult sizes)

Please note: 
Costuming a recital is a labor intensive task that requires measuring, ordering, checking the order, and trying to predict which students are going to grow beyond the measurement allowances.  Altering costumes is sometimes inevitable.  Please see the front desk if alterations are needed.

Volunteer Opportunities - There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer before, during and after the recital.  Each year parents kindly help with altering costumes, preparing sets/props and helping out backstage.

DTNE Dance Awards – Dancers who have danced at DTNE for 5  or 10 years will be recognized with a special trophy and will be listed in our recital program.  A list of dancers receiving awards this year will be posted at the studio.  Please be sure to check the list to be sure that your dancer is listed if they qualify.  We do our best to keep our records up to date, but sometimes we miss someone, especially if they have not been at the studio for consecutive years.

Dress Rehearsal – Satruday, June 13, 2020

Dress Rehearsal for our June Recital is held on stage at the Recital venue.  Participation in dress rehearsal is mandatory.  This is a run through of the entire show without stopping.  The dress rehearsal allows the students to become familiar with the auditorium surroundings and feel comfortable with their performance, costume and just being on stage.  Lighting, music cues, set changes, and other logistics for a professional show are rehearsed at that time.

Please note, Dancers with unpaid balances will not participate in the Dress Rehearsal or Recital.
