When organizing a school, church or other organization’s performance, finding a great uniform is almost as important as having the steps down. Every dance team or dance class is different and special in their own way which is why it’s important to find a uniform or costume that expresses that team’s individuality. There’s a lot of cookie-cutter uniforms out there - how do you find a good quality, cost-efficient and beautiful uniform that your group will love?
In addition to the challenge organizers or dance captains face of finding beautiful, unique uniforms, they must also take into account how many group members there are and the budget. Generally, dance or performance groups can expect to pay upwards from $100 per outfit. Even for elementary school aged kids, the costumes or uniforms for shows can get really pricey, which is why fundraisers to pay for dance uniforms are so common. How do organizers find cost-efficient costume or uniform options that will meet their groups’ needs?
