Frequently Asked Questions

Studio Showcase

Youth Program

Who provides the shoes?

You are responsible for providing your child's shoes.

How do I pick my child's costume size?

You won't need to pick your child's costume size.

Montage Staff will measure your child in class and will select the appropriate size.

Where are my child's accessories?

Montage Staff will hold onto your child's accessories until the day of the show.

On the day of the show, Montage Staff will put on your child's accessories backstage and they will take them home afterwards. We do this because if one dancer forgets their accessories then all the dancers will not be able to wear them.

When do I get my child's costume?

It depends on the class. Your child's costume will be handed out in class towards the end of May or early June.
