-All students are expected to participate in recital. Recital is the end goal of the season taking place the first week of June, at the Polk Theatre. This is where all UDC students shine & showcase what they have learned in class with a recital piece on stage, cultivating self-confidence with pride! All recital fee deadlines must be paid in full or else the student cannot participate. The cut off for newly registered students to be able to participate in recital is December prior to costume ordering but they are still welcome to join the class & will learn the recital routine as well as class curriculum.
-Costume Fees: A $60 costume fee is issued for child sizes XS-LC, XLC - Adult Sizes owe a $70 Costume Fee. Dancers will be able to keep their costumes after recital, UDC will also handle all sizing measurements & ordering - you will be notified when your dancer can pick up their costume by the class Instructor. Costume fees are due by the end of January or your dancer cannot participate in recital.
-Recital Fees: There is a $45 recital fee per family (not per student). This recital fee facilitates rental of the performance space & instructor pay for choreography. Recital fees are due by the end of March or your dancer cannot participate in recital.
-There is no recital showcase during the summer months of June & July - if attending Summer Session please disregard costume & recital fees above. We have an open audition for our annual Holiday Production which changes every season - the performance takes place the 1st weekend of December & Auditions are in August, Rehearsals take place on Saturdays from September - December. We hold our productions at the Historic Polk Theatre, located in downtown Lakeland.
Ultimate Dance Center does not issue refunds on tuition, costume or recital fees.
Behavior & Procedures
-While in the studio, students are expected to exhibit proper behavior and demonstrate respectful attitude toward fellow students and UDC Faculty.

we do keep a Lost & Found Box. Check with reception if something is lost.

You can also view the dress code online at UDCLakeland.com or ask for a copy at Front Desk. Please review the requirements as all styles vary - from shoes to leotards & etc. In order to learn proper technique & skills we expect dancers to be dressed accordingly.
-CRAZY WEEK - We like to have fun while we learn at Ultimate Dance Center - it's ultimately about the joy of dance - during the 3rd full week of every month we have "Crazy Week" where dancers are encouraged to get wacky with their dancewear - we love seeing costumes, crazy colors, & etc - students may ditch the dress code (no logo no leo & etc) during this week only, all we require is that they have the correct dance shoes for their class (Ballet, Tap, Lyrical, Jazz, Sneakers for Hip Hop) to ensure safety.
-Please provide us with up to date health information such as daily medications, food allergens etc. Absolutely NO medication may be administered by the UDC faculty or staff.

The faculty of UDC will evaluate each student's progress throughout the semester and a change of class level will be suggested if necessary. We have a set curriculum for level & age, please trust we will guide your dancer in the right direction - placement is based on Studio Manager, Jennifer Davis's discretion.
