Required Performance Tights

  • EVERY STUDENT will be required to purchase the appropriate new tights according to each class and costume.
  • Tights are priced at discounted from retail/wholesale industry prices and can (and will) be worn in dance classes the whole next year!
  • Tights invoices will be finalized 2/15/18 and all payment due by MARCH 1, 2018. No need to purchase tights now, exact requirements per class will be on your invoice in February.

You MAY NOT purchase your own tights or use an old or current pair of tights.  We purchase all tights new, in bulk to ensure that all students in each class have the same pair and brand of tights that are of the same “dye-lot” for uniformity on stage. 

Please respectfully and maturely note that dancers do not wear underwear underneath of costumes on stage.  Tights are considered a dancer’s underwear (imagine “long underwear”) that help to reduce unsightly lines, hold costume pieces in place, provide modesty when changing backstage etc.
