It’s Costume Time!

Hello everyone…I know it seems like classes have just begun, but a lot of planning goes into our spring shows and it starts with creatively coming up with our show themes and designing or selecting costumes for each class.

The Staff is VERY excited about the themes for both our Recital and Ballet Performance.

Elite Proudly Presents:

We will be sending out a more detailed rehearsal and show schedule in April. 


In order to get everything ordered and delivered on time, costume fees are due by November 18th. Your costume fee includes shipping and accessories and since you are purchasing the costume it is yours to keep after the recitals! The only additional cost is tights. Specifics on tights will be given out in the spring after costumes have been handed out.

After Thanksgiving Break, dancers will be measured during their class time. Costumes are ordered in December and shipped to us by April. Once they arrive, they will be handed out in class and dancers will be able to take them home along with instructions on fitting, alterations, and accessories.


  • All dancers participating in the spring recital MUST purchase the class costume.

  • Once costumes are ordered there will be no refunds. Sorry, no exceptions.

  • Costume fees not received by November 18th will be charged a $20.00 late fee.

  • If you are not planning on participating in the spring recital, please email us at so you are not charged for a costume or late fee.

  • To ensure that your dancer’s costume is ordered – please double check to make sure that you have selected the correct class/classes that your dancer is registered for.

If you are not paying with the online PayPal services, please know that costume fees need to be paid on a separate check from monthly tuition and mark costume fee on the memo line.  (Costume fees cannot be deducted thru Elite’s EFT service.) 

As always, we will post pictures of all the class costumes after Winter Break…the dancers love this tradition! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at or call us at the studio 503-645-8105.
