CHEER COSTUMES:

Costumes are a unique design just for Upstage, & costumes made specifically for each Upstage student. Due to this, Costume Fees are quite high. Upstage Dance & Cheer pride ourselves with our modern, striking cheer costumes with costumes often commented on when our students wear them. Limited 2nd Hand Costumes are available, see Reception ASAP. Your costume is worn for all Show-offs, Competitions & our End of Year Concert. Costumes designs are changed every 3 years to stay up to date with latest trends.
