Costumes | Panorama School of Dance

Costumes

Costumes

We spend many hours determining the correct costumes for each class. They are always age-appropriate and of the highest quality possible. Preschool students will need one costume; all other students will need one costume for each subject they train in. Costumes include all accessories (hats, gloves, etc.), but not tights or shoes.

Costume Payments

Costumes will not be handed out until they are paid for in full. Costume deposits ($45) are paid upon registration for each dance style.  Costume balances are posted to your account according to the schedule attached below. Costume balance payments are due within 30 days of posting and payment can be made by logging into your parent portal and making the payment yourself, or by stopping by the office and making the payment in person.  Any balances outstanding on the due date will automatically be processed using the bank information you have on file.
Costume Balance Posting Schedule
Panorama School of Dance is not responsible if costumes are not received in time for the recital due to outstanding payments.

Sizing

Costume measuring begins in October, during scheduled class times. Each child will be measured in order to determine his or her proper costume size(s).

Alterations

Although rare, alterations are sometimes needed after the costumes have been distributed and are the sole responsibility of the student’s parent or guardian. Please contact the Panorama School of Dance office for appointment with seamstress.

Distribution

Costumes will be distributed when all outstanding balances for the season (including tuition) are paid in full. To ensure that there are no costume problems, students should not wear their costumes, accessories, or tights prior to the photo session, dress rehearsal, or performance.

Withdrawal

No refunds will be made if a parent or guardian withdraws a child from the school after costumes have been ordered and prior to the recital. Parent or guardians may pick up purchased costumes at the school at the time of general costume distribution and up to 15 days after the performance. Costumes not picked up after 15 days will be donated to charity.

Costume Care

We highly recommend that each student’s name be placed in his or her costumes, shoes, accessories, and tights. Place the costumes in a garment bag with your child’s name on the outside. Pack accessories in a clear plastic bag with your child’s name on the bag and on each item. Hats should be stored in a hatbox or similar container to prevent damage. Steam wrinkles from costumes prior to the dress rehearsal and the performance. Please do not wash costumes in your washing machine; dry clean them only (after the recital).

Always have a second pair of tights available.
Place costumes in a garment bag for travel.
Carry hats in a hatbox or container to prevent them from damage.

Our daughter began dancing at PSOD when she was 4 years old. We did our research and many parents at our daughter's school recommended PSOD. The dance teachers are genuinely interested in the students and you can tell they love dance and teaching. The studio is a friendly and nurturing environment. I have been so impressed with the level of professionalism and organization. The class photos, costumes, and recitals are wonderful - you can tell they put a lot of hard work and heart into it. I also have to say that we really appreciate that the dance routines , music and costumes are age appropriate which was important to us. I would highly recommend PSOD.

About Panorama School of Dance

Panorama School of Dance has been teaching children to dance in Surrey and Delta for over 30 years. Our first students are now coming back with their own children! This is an amazing sight to see and a testament to the unique experience that these young mothers remember from their childhood.

Panorama not only teaches children how to dance, but promotes personal development, poise, self-confidence, health and fitness. Throughout the years we have grown from a small local church studio with a dozen students to a dance school with 2 locations including 6 studios and over 500 families. Through this growth, the personal touch has not been lost.
