4. Will there be a recital? When will it be?

Flying Colors has one dance recital performance a year in mid to late May on a Saturday. The younger performers (ages 2.5- 5 years) perform in a morning recital. Dress rehearsal is during their regularly scheduled classes the week before the recital. The older children ( 5 years and above) and the adult classes perform in an evening recital. Dress rehearsal is at the auditorium the night before the recital. The recital is held at San Benito High School Auditorium.

5. Will I need to buy a costume for my child’s recital? Will my child need to wear makeup?

The recital is optional, however if you chose to perform in the recital you must purchase a costume. Each class performs their own routine with their own costume. The cost per costume is $60.00. The costume fee includes: 1 costume and accessories, 1 pair of tights and 2 recital tickets.
You have the option of paying the costume fee in full or paying in three monthly installments added to your monthly tuition. Costume fees are non-refundable and cannot be returned. However, the costume can be exchanged for a different size if needed. We will have a try on week in which the child will try on their costume during their regularly scheduled class time. Costumes will remain at the studio until they are packaged, pressed and paid for.

6. Can my child take a class even if they do not perform in the recital?

Yes, your child may take class and choose not to perform in the recital.

7. Why am I charged the same amount tuition on months with Holiday breaks?

Tuition is based on the entire school year, prorated to account for Holidays. There are usually 35 weeks in the school year (NOT counting the holiday weeks). Tuition is based on per class cost multiplied by 35 weeks and divided by 9 monthly installment payments. If we charged tuition for the weeks we are on holiday, your monthly tuition would be based on a 39-week school year and would cost more.
