Annual Spring Recitals
Soul Steppin’ will hold a Spring Annual Recital each year. Each student will be charged a $25 Recital Fee to cover costs of renting the venue, liability insurance, and any other costs. This fee will cover both recitals. The recital will consist of class costume orders. Each class will have a costume in which the student will be required to purchase. Depending on the number of the classes the student is enrolled in, they could have a few different costumes. The director will decide which costume best fits the performance number. Costumes will be ordered in early January to ensure timely delivery for recital time.
RECITAL FEES ARE $25 due in October.
Recital and Dress Rehearsal dates will not be the same every year due to availability of facility and schedules. The director will have Recital and Dress Rehearsal dates posted at the beginning of every year. Please see our website or office for this information. Every student will be required to attend Dress Rehearsal to participate in recital. There will be no exception to this policy.
Soul Steppin’ Studio feels that students should have more opportunities to participate in performances where they can showcase skills and choreography learned throughout the year. This will provide students the opportunity to go through an audition process as well as participate in more than one recital per year. Every student will be participating in the Winter Recital. Rehearsal and Recital times will be posted on the studio’s website and in the office. Students will also be notified of audition times for specific parts. There will be minimal if any costume purchases for this recital.
A big part of dance training includes learning through performance. The experience helps build self-esteem and confidence, which can result in better in-studio presentations, improved social skills, and strong college and job interview skills.
Parents/Student will be responsible for the full costume cost. There may be an occurrence where a prop is necessary. In some instances, the director may have the prop on hand and the student will borrow it for that performance but other times, the parent will be responsible for purchasing and handling the prop. We will take measurements for costumes in November. Costume deposits will be due in November and full payment will be due in January. We will not order costumes that have not been paid for. Soul Steppin’ is not responsible for costumes that do not arrive in time for recital due to late payment.
Costumes deposits are due in November. $30 per class (some classes may require 2 costumes. Instructor will notify you of this).
Costumes are delivered in March-April.
Once costumes arrive we will try them on during class time to ensure a proper fit. If a costume does not fit, we are able to exchange within one week of receiving it at no cost to you, if it is returned in its original packaging.
Some classes may require additional costume accessories. These accessories include, but are not limited to tights, gloves, socks, props, etc. Parents are responsible for purchasing these items.
In an effort to ensure that costumes are delivered in time for recital photographs and an organized distribution to our students, costume orders are placed during the December winter break. Costume manufacturers do not accept cancellations or offer refunds; therefore the studio does not refund costume balances.
