If so, then it’s time to start ordering costumes for the end of semester recital! Some costumes are coming from Amazon and some are ordered by TBE. There will be detailed posts in our Band App groups. You can see all the info about costumes in your DSP portal under the costumes tab any time as well.

TBE staff will come by classes April 15-19 to do fitting as needed. Orders are due by April 26. Costumes ordered after that date will have a $5 per week late fee.

New this year there will be a mandatory recital fee of $65 per performer which includes a recital t-shirt with show logo on the front and all the cast names on the back plus a media fee for full access to all the photos and YouTube videos from the event. All performers will wear the cast shirts in the opening and closing numbers with a bright colored skirt, leggings, or black pants.

Most classes perform in only one show 1 pm OR 6 pm. See the performance order here

Class costumes and show tickets are additional. Tickets are tiered $15-$35 depending on the location in the theater. Each performer receives one free ticket for them to watch the show if they want to watch from the audience with their family.


Dress rehearsal reminders:

Please always arrive to the theater with hair & makeup ready, costumes organized, tights and undergarments on. The theater costs $300-$600 per hour ($5+ per minute we are there) and it is not a good use of our money to pay to get ready there. Teachers will post about hair and makeup looks in the Bands & discuss during classes.

Littles and non-dance team kids will be sitting in the audience when not on stage so they can watch the show too. Back three rows to the side are reserved for performers or they can sit on laps with their family. (If there are empty seats on the day of the show the littles are welcome to sit there too, but we want to make sure the audience has seats.)

We will also have 4 photo op backdrops backstage and will be doing photo shoots of each dancer and group as much as possible while the show is going and will post on our socials and in the bands.

We ask only one parent accompany the dancer backstage if needed. TBE Staff will be walking littles around from the audience seating and they can change costumes at intermission. Please do not move during a song or number. Wait until the performers are done to move from your seats. (Backstage at this theater is small so would prefer parents watch the show from the audience as much as possible.) Parents cannot watch from the wings of the stage, but there is a TV in the hallway where you can see the show as it is going.

Please stay for the entire show, it is soul crushing when the audience leaves mid-way.

Remember tickets increase $5 on the day of the show. You can see the current act list and seating chart at
