  • Recital attendance is FREE with no need to purchase tickets and no limit on number of guests
  • Participation Form will be sent in October and February. We ask that you kindly respond in a timely manner. Costumes will be ordered based on your response and are non-refundable

  • Spring Recital is our big event of the year! Costumes are professionally made and yours to keep. Fee will be charged in March. 
  • PLEASE NOTE: Recital Fees cover the cost of the costumes which are theirs to keep as well as contribute to a portion of the rental fees that we encounter in the Wash Metro area for theater space. This allows us to keep recitals open to all with no tickets or admission fees

Tippi Toes Attire

Tippi Toes encourages each dancer to wear dance attire or t-shirts along with tights, leggings, or a skirt. Ballet slippers are preferred for dancers under the age of 6. For Hip Hop classes, jazz shoes or tennis shoes are preferred.

At our daycare locations, attire is up to you!  Your dancer may bring a change of dance clothes or wear non-restrictive school clothes. We do ask that your dancer wear tights or leggings to school on the day of dance so they can just slip on their leotard if changing. Ballet shoes are preferred. Please let your school teacher know if your dancer needs to change before Tippi Toes class starts.    

Inclement Weather Policy

Tippi Toes classes follow the school districts where they operate (ex/ when DC Public Schools are closed, Tippi Toes is closed). We do have some locations that make their own decisions. If your school or center is open, we will have class unless we notify you.

Want to enroll or have Tippi Toes come to your child’s school, play group or church?
