Costumes - Dancers should not wear underwear under their tights and costume. Dancers with more than one costume will be required to wear a body liner as a base. Once your costumes leave our facility, we are not responsible for them. We cannot replace lost, defective, stolen, torn, stained, or ruined costumes. Costumes should be stored in a safe, dry area. If your costume has a tutu, hang it upside down to allow the wrinkles to fall out. Do not wash or dry clean costumes. 

Tights, Shoes, and Body Liners - Required tights and shoes are listed under View Performances / Performance Notes in your on-line portal. Dancers with more than one costume are required to wear a body liner as a base. Body liners must be worn anytime dancers are changing costumes, including during Picture Week. We have tights and body liners available for purchase. Tights are $12 + tax. Body liners are $20 + tax and are available in a light or dark shade. If you would like to purchase tights or a body liner, email info@danceacademywest and include your dancer’s name, size, color / shade, and quantity. The charge will be placed on your account and debited prior to sending the items home.
