Costume Orders

HEATHER’S DANCE COMPANY -Recital 2022 Costume Order Information- I HAVE SHOWED PICTURES OF THE COSTUMES IN EACH CLASS LAST WEEK.  THE PICTURES ARE UP ON THE WALL IN THE HALLWAY AND WILL REMAIN UP THROUGH THE SEASON.  YOU CAN COME LOOK AT THEM ANYTIME.  WITHIN THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS, I WILL ALSO POST THEM ON THE BAND APP.  

In order to be in “Just Dance 2022 Recital” you will need to commit to the following dates.  

Date of Recital: Saturday May 14, 2022           Date of Dress Rehearsal: Tuesday May 10, 2022 

Both the dress rehearsal and both shows will be held at St. Johns HS auditorium this season.  

Although the recital is not until May 2022, we NEED to get costumes ordered ASAP!  Costume companies are in a pretty tight spot, how many and which costumes should be in stock, etc.  The earlier we get the orders in, the faster we will get in line for production, etc. The orders and payments are due by Saturday November 20th at 10:30am. If there is a financial reason why you cannot pay by then, please communicate that with me.  We strive to allow anyone who wants to participate in the recital be able to do so.  We have a generous costume angel fund- more on that below.  

This is how the recital will work this year.  Each class is assigned to a Show- Either Show A 11:00am or Show B 3:30pm.  I always attempt to keep families all in the same show, but am not always successful.  That information is below; please be sure to check if your students are in the same show and let me know if they are not asap so I can change as needed if possible.  Classes in level 4 and advanced will perform in 2 shows. Classes in level 3 and below will perform in 1 show.   

When recital tickets go on sale, usually around the Spring Break depending on any seating restrictions.  

Working on recital routines:  In classes, we will begin working on recital routines around mid November or December.  

How to Order a Costume:  Each costume is $70.  The fee will be added to your dance account showing an invoice and due date of November 20th.   If you are on auto pay- your card WILL NOT be auto charged for a costume.  I will know that you want a costume if you pay for it. The usual payment methods will work.  Cash, check, Venmo @heather-reed-180, PayPal heathersdancestjohns@gmail.com as a friend, or log into the parent portal and pay with a CC.  

Tights: Tights do not come with the costumes EXCEPT “pre level” classes.  If you’d like me to order tights for your with your costume, they are $10. You can also order your own later.  All tights should be natural or skintone. 

Costume Sizes: Here is a Google Form to fill out with sizing information. ***IMPORTANT costume Order Form 2022 recital ****THIS IS REQUIRED! Please fill it out with as must information as possible so that I can determine what size your dancer needs.  You will need to log into a google account to access the form.   You can submit ONE FORM PER FAMILY, just note which dancer for which sizes.  

IF YOU DECIDE NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE RECITAL: After you pay for and order your costume, there are NO REFUNDS.  Also, If you decide not to order a costume now, I may not be able to get you one later.  If you need your dancer in a certain show because of a major event, like a family wedding, please ask if its possible.  I always do what I can.  

If your student is not participating in the recital, she or he will still remain part of the class and learn the choreography. Be sure that he/she knows that they are not getting a costume because they won’t be in the show. I will not make them feel bad for not participating.  We talk about the recital a LOT in classes to be sure that students are fully prepared to go onstage.   

COSTUME ANGEL AND FINANCIAL AID:  If a student wishes to participate in the recital but families have financial difficulties and can not afford a costume, we have the costume angel program.  This program allows for generous people to donate anonymously to the students account.  This is still a GREAT NEED.  If you are financially able to assist a family, please drop cash, check, Venmo or PayPal with a costume angel note to the studio. Donations will be applied directly to a student’s account that needs it.  Each costume is $70, but donations of any amount are accepted.  

If you NEED the assistance, please contact me.  I do not require your financial hardship story; just tell me you could use it and I will put you on the list.

Wear your costume to class week

March 8-11 th

Pictures are in 2 weeks! Everyone should have their costumes unless I’ve contacted you about the sizing issue.

Let’s have NEXT week be “wear your recital costume to class to practice in it” That way we start to see if there are any issues that need to be dealt with.

If you are a virtual student, please consider coming to the studio in person next week and again the week of April 19, then every week in May so we can work on spacing and such.

Normally I would have all kinds of info for you about the recital, but with restrictions still in place, I’m still working on it. We will still be working on going on and off the stage etc.

Reminder: no classes the week of March 27-April 3 for spring break.

Classes not canceled tonight Tues Feb 16

Good morning dance families,
Although schools were closed today, I do not plan to cancel classes tonight. If you can travel safely, come on into the studio. If you’d prefer to zoom in, here are the links for tonight’s classes.


Heather Reed is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
