Dearborn Dance Academy

Specializing in Classical Ballet

We’re often asked why costume deposits must be paid so early.  The costume manufacturers are inundated with costume orders from studios all over the country for June recitals.  The longer we wait to order costumes the longer it takes to receive them.  If we order in December, costumes will probably arrive in early March.  Furthermore, costumes that are ordered by December are discounted, reducing your total costume cost.
A $60.00 deposit per costume
must be paid by mid-October.  
Checks should be made payable to

Patricia Mortens.  
No refunds. 

The full price of the costume, which we try to keep
between $80-$90, should be available by February. 
After the deposit is made, your child will be measured
so costumes can be ordered early. 
You are responsible for any hand sewing
or alterations on costumes.
