Uniform Fitting/Exchange for Returning Students

This Wednesday, 9/19 – 9:25-11:25 am in Chorus Room/Girls Dressing Room

We do have gowns and tuxedo components in various sizes in inventory. Returning students who need a new uniform should come to this special session to be re-fitted.  Students should bring in their old uniforms, recently dry-cleaned and with plastic still on it for a potential exchange.


  1. If you find a uniform in inventory that works for you, we can offer that uniform as an exchange when you turn in your old uniform (dry-cleaned and still in plastic.)
  • Exchanges will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • If alterations are necessary, you will need to arrange and pay for the service yourself. (See the information under New Students/Uniforms on our website.)
  1. If an exchange cannot be made, you will need to purchase a new uniform.   For Uniform Requirements & Instructions for both Gowns and Tuxedos, visit Uniforms Page
