You don't need your team to get started : How to plan ahead to take advantage of early bird costume specials

Posted by Jessica on Mar 3, 2023



One of the easiest ways to save on dance costumes is to plan ahead and take advantage of early bird discounts. 

Dance is a highly seasonal business, and when everyone wants their costumes in the fall, this can translate to an increase in lead-time and cost to you, the coach. To help offset this seasonality, every year The Line Up hosts an "early bird" sale from January to May, where teams can save on their custom dance costumes.

  1. A fully formed team! Don’t wait to get started.
