To help reduce fees, cash or check (payable to LPRD) is recommended.

Last day to withdraw from classes and receive a prorated refund for the remaining classes of the year minus a $25 withdrawal fee is Friday October 28, 2022. If you do not officially withdraw from classes with Parks and Recreation by this date, you will be charged in full for your class and costume fees.

Costume Deposits
Sparkles, glitter, and sequins galore! Costume ordering is exciting for instructors and students. Your dancer will be measured, and their costume(s) will be ordered this fall. All costume deposits are due at the time of registration, as these fees are not included in the class rates. Please see the class descriptions to determine how many routines your dancer's class participates in. Costume balances will be due by February 2023*. Your dancer's beautiful costume(s) arrive in the spring!
 
1 routine in the Recital = $25 costume deposit
2 routines in the Recital = $50 costume deposit
3 routines in the Recital = $75 costume deposit

*Costume balances not paid in full by the due date may result in exclusion from the dance recital, at LPRD discretion.
