The average cost of a costume is between $75.00 and $90.00. Costumes have been ordered for all students who paid a $30.00 deposit per costume. Students were measured during class, leaving ample room for growth and ordered according to each company’s sizing charts. If a deposit was not made, a costume was not ordered. Costumes must be paid in full and will be distributed as we receive them. We deal with several different costume companies which have various shipping times between 8-12 weeks from the date they are ordered.Once a child’s costume is ordered, you are responsible for full payment. There will be no refunds given for any reason, as costumes are made to order and cannot be returned. Additional information shoes, tights, hair etc. will soon be provided. Those who have automatic tuition payment by credit card will need to let us know if and when you want your balance to be made with your credit card.
