• DDSGC Recital Information:
    • We try to arrange 3 recitals for the children to attend:
      • Thanksgiving weekend (Sunday),
      • the first weekend in March,
      • the third Saturday in May.
    • The costume is used for all performances. (One costume purchase per year)
    • While the recitals are optional, you must “opt out” of the initial order by emailing Anyone joining dance after Oct 1st should confirm in writing that they would like their dancers in the shows for that term (Sept – May)
  • One Time Fees:
    • Stage fee of $25
    • Costume fee of:  $75.00
    • These fees are automatically deducted with October tuition.
    • Included in your recital/costume fee is one costume and one pair of tights (Please remember that you will need tights to match the color of the dance shoes.  So, white tap shoes need white tights, tan jazz shoes need tan tights…).
    • If you would like to make payment arrangements other than what we have noted, please contact us.
    • Schedules are laid out below, please keep in mind that because we are working with multiple schedules and locations that adjustments may need to be made as we approach the date of the event(s).
    • There are no refunds for any reason.

The following videos are for your assistance. Please understand that we do not mandate make-up on the dancers, but suggest it. Your dancer will be easier to view with make-up applied, but please do this at your discretion and comfort zone. We do want the female dancers to have their hair in a bun, and suggest practicing this weekly for class. It will then become so easy and basic to you and be a quick process.
