Costume Measurement Week – 3 Things to Know
Written by Erin Sforza on November 5, 2019

It’s time to get everyone measured for recital costumes! Here are 3 things to know that will help make this process as easy as possible:

  • Take a Tutu Break: If you have a plain leotard without a tutu or with a removable one that would be the best attire for Measurement Week. Our teachers will be able to get a much better measurement if they aren’t trying to get around or flatten out a tutu.
  • Join the Fun!: We show an informative video about costumes and recital that may answer a lot of questions for you, even of you are one of our veteran parents. Being in the room during measurements will also give you the opportunity to look over the Costume Sheet and ask questions of your teacher to make sure you fully understand the costume and its accessories.
  • Use Your Options: You have several ways to order your costume: online at the website address on your form which can be accessed through the Dance Connection website, by phone during office hours, and directly with our reception staff at the studio. We are here to guide you through if it makes you feel more comfortable, especially if your child seems to be between sizes.

Remember that our staff and teachers are here for any and all questions that you may have, whether it is your first or eighth recital. Each costume is different every year, so let us know if we can help!
