Howe Sound Dance Academy believes that performing is a fun and beneficial way to present that which a student has learned. We have performed for Canada Music Week, Trade Fair, Star Search, Hilltop House, Childrens’ Festivals and various dance competitions as well as during our year-end shows. Costumes and associated fees are required for these performances. This year HSDA produced over 500 costumes for performances.
For non-competitive classes there will be a costume fee of $70.00 per student per costume, for competitive classes the costume fee of $75.00 will be considered a deposit should costume costs run over. These are to be paid in full by October 15. This fee provides a readymade costume including accessories. Alterations (ie hemming, minor adjustment etc…) will be the responsibility of the dancer. Tights, shoes, undergarments & sports bras are the responsibility of the dancers, however specific color, type or brand may be requested by the instructor. Costumes are the property of the student.
