G. Scotten Talent Center employs a studio-wide dress code for dance classes. Students wear dancewear specific to their division.  We do this to enhance . . .

  • Performance!  We are always seeking performance opportunities for our students.  When an opportunity comes knocking, all of the students will already have a “matching” base outfit that we can build on to create a quick, inexpensive and classy costume.
  • Convenience!  We want parents to be comfortable purchasing a small amount of dancewear and to avoid the burden of buying several outfits for different days of the week.
  • Confidence!  We want students to feel comfortable and confident in their classroom setting.  Having them all wear similar leotards eliminates the possibility for clothing competitions in the classroom.
  • Fun!  We will have designated FUN days throughout the year when students will be allowed to wear whatever appropriate dancewear they choose. Scheduled FUN days will be announced in an upcoming newsletter.

GSTC has been inviting parents into the classroom since 1999, and the tradition resumes this year. Observation weeks are determined at the beginning of the year and often are planned to coincide with other recognized events or holidays. Our first observation week celebrates Halloween, and students are invited to dress in their Halloween costume during classes this week. Appropriate dance shoes should be worn. (Regular dancewear may be worn by those who choose not to don a costume.) During the observation periods, parents of enrolled students ages 18 mos. and up will be welcomed into the classroom, where they can watch, photograph and record their child’s classes. We look forward to seeing you at this always-fun event! Dates of Parent Observation Weeks are listed below. Don’t forget to mark your calendars!!

October TBA

All students of G. Scotten Talent Center will receive an annual commemorative certificate for their contributions to and achievements in dance.

GSTC is proud to offer each one of its students a multitude of dance experiences in the classroom and on the stage.  The certificates rewards their participation in these various events as well as their commitment to their teachers and their studio.

It is our strong desire to give back to the kids who give so much to us.  We applaud your enthusiasm for dance and your commitment to GSTC.


Student Productions

Annual Student Performances
Event Overview

Each year, G. Scotten Talent Center delivers classy and professionally staged productions featuring all students in costumed performances. For the convenience of parents and students alike, we separate our Annual Student Production into three distinct shows, and we make each of them a reasonable length for audiences to enjoy from the opening to the closing curtain.  The Noon show features our Performing Troupe students in their solos, duets and trios. It lasts about 90 minutes.  The 4pm show features our youngest dancers, lasting about an hour. Our 7pm show features students older dancers and takes about 2 hours.

Sample Costume Carnival
Nov. 11-14

This year, we will again incorporate our annual Costume Carnival day into a week-long celebration of the approaching Annual Student Production! This year’s Costume Carnival will take place November 11-14, 2019.

During the week, students will be measured for their dance recital costumes and photos of the selected class costumes will be displayed for excited students and parents to enjoy.  Payments for costumes will also be collected.

Costumes remain $60 for students in the Pre-K division (Tiny Tot & Discover Dance) and $70 for students in the Youth and Pre-Professional divisions (Grades K-12).

A $40 Production Fee per family is also due and goes toward general production costs and facility rental. We do not sell tickets to the production; admission is free. The Noblesville High School auditorium is large and we encourage you to invite as many family members and friends as you like to enjoy our fantastic programs.

Following the Costume Carnival, costumes will be ordered immediately to ensure their timely arrival in the Spring. Costume forms not submitted and costumes not paid for by November 14 will incur an additional $15 fee. Payment can be made by cash, check, MasterCard or Visa.

The following list of classes reflects 1) the production the class will be performing in, and 2) how many routines each class will perform. The total number of routines determines the number of costumes you will need to purchase.

Sample Production Guide

Academic Term training culminates each year with the Annual Student Production. This entertaining program gives GSTC students an exciting opportunity to perform in a professionally staged show for family and friends. The information below addresses the ingredients necessary for a successful production and serves as a helpful guide.


Each of the two dress rehearsals will be held at Noblesville High School and should be treated as an actual performance. The show will run from beginning to end, only stopping if necessary. Students should wear their full costumes, including correct tights, shoes, hairstyle and accessories.

At the dress rehearsals, we will practice the finale at the end of the rehearsal or during the time planned for intermission. All students should be present to practice the finale at their designated dress rehearsal(s).

The dress rehearsals are scheduled as follows:

  • Mid-Afternoon Production Dress Rehearsal (Tiny Tot, Discover Dance & Elementary) – Thursday, June 4, 2020 6pm (5:15 pm arrival)
  • Evening Production Dress Rehearsal (Tumbling, Hip Hop, Intermediate & Advanced) – Friday, June 5, 2020 6pm (5:15 pm arrival)

Performers should arrive at 5:15pm to the dress rehearsal. We will begin promptly at 6pm. Please be ready to perform. If you are in both shows, you are required to attend both dress rehearsals. Dress rehearsals can last until approximately 9pm.

Performing Troupe members will perform select routines in the Mid-Afternoon Production and are required to attend both dress rehearsals.


Do not wear your costume to and from the high school. Dressing rooms are provided and all performers should change when they arrive and again before they leave. Do not wear your dance shoes outside. Please label your child’s name in all of her/his costumes and shoes. No costumes shall be worn into the audience during a performance. Only street clothes are permitted in the audience. This rule applies at all times before the show, during intermission and after the show.


  • Discover Dance, Elementary Tap & Jazz, Intermediate Tap & Jazz, Hip Hop — Bloch Light Tan Tights
  • Tiny Tot, Elementary Ballet, Intermediate Ballet, Advanced Ballet — Bloch Pink Tights
  • Performing Troupe — Performance tights specific to each routine

Makeup is used to make features stand out under the bright stage lights. For eyes, we recommend using browns or burgundies in the crease, cream or white on the brow bone, and light natural colors for the lid. Rosy or natural blush will emphasize the cheekbones and red lipstick is appropriate. Eyeliner and mascara are encouraged. False eyelashes are permitted if the child chooses to wear them. Please no blue eye shadow or orange-red lipstick. For young children, minimum make-up is required. Just enough to show up under the strong stage lights is sufficient.

Style your hair in the specific style that your teacher requires. Bring bobby pins to secure hair accessories. Criss-cross the bobby pins to provide maximum hold. All ballet students are required to wear a bun in their hair. Secure your bun with bobby pins and a hair net.

Jewelry is not permitted to be worn on stage for either the dress rehearsals or the performances. Jewelry distracts from the continuity of the costuming and can also be harmful to neighboring performers.

Underwear should not be worn under tights. If a bra is needed, safety pin the straps to your costume so they cannot be seen under any circumstance. Wear a bra that is appropriate to your costume. (i.e. halter, strapless or low-back)

Eating or drinking in costume is prohibited. Absolutely no food or drinks in the dressing rooms or auditorium. Please no chewing gum.


Familes, friends and siblings may not enter the holding area/dressing rooms at any time before, during or after rehearsal(s) and performance(s). One parent per child may assist the performer in the dressing room during rehearsal(s) and performance(s). Dressing rooms will be labeled by class and age. Please utilize your specified dressing room. If a child performs in more than one number, his/her parent is responsible for changing him/her into the next costume in time for the next performance. Staff cannot be responsible for helping students change.

Several classes require a parent chaperone (a parent who volunteers to monitor a class in the holding area). Instructors will inform students who their chaperone will be. Chaperones will be the same for the dress rehearsal and the performance. If you are interested in volunteering to be a chaperone, please let your instructor know. Performers will be lined up in production order in the holding area (hallway) behind stage. Performers must remain quiet at all times. Please stress this to your child. Coloring books and reading books are excellent activities that will pass time as the students wait. Please do not bring more than one item, and put your name on it. Do not bring markers, pens or electronic games. Crayons and colored pencils are ok. GSTC is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Backstage is the area surrounding the stage itself. No one is allowed in this area without permission. Only parent chaperones may enter the backstage area to escort classes to and from the stage. Parents of performers who have fast costume changes (1 or 2 numbers) may use this area for changing with permission from Alyssa or Vicki.


Your child’s safety is important to us. All children performing in the Mid-Afternoon Production must be supervised backstage. At least two chaperones should be responsible for each class. Your teacher will ask for parent volunteers from each class to chaperone. Some children will want a parent to remain backstage at all times. This is fine and is encouraged if needed.

The chaperone’s job is to ensure that the backstage environment is controlled and orderly. The chaperone has many duties. They are required to keep each class together as a group, take small children to use the restrooms, line up the children in their proper order before they go on stage (your teacher will provide a lineup order), send children on stage, be available in the wings to collect children when they exit the stage, line up children for the finale, and escort children to the dressing rooms after their performance.

Chaperones must also wait until each child has been picked up by their parent after the show. Chaperones must be available during dress rehearsal and the production. This way children will get to know who is in charge of them.

If you are not a designated chaperone, please drop off your child in the dressing room with your designated chaperone and return to the auditorium to enjoy the show. You may pick up your child immediately after the finale.


GSTC student productions are free to the public. Students may invite as many friends and family members as they wish. To accommodate such an arrangement, there is no prearranged seating or reserved seating. Seating is first come, first served.

The lobby will be open several hours before the productions. The auditorium doors will not open until 45 minutes prior to the beginning of the show. As a courtesy to other audience members, saving seats is not allowed. In the past, this has caused frustration and confusion.

Noblesville High School has tremendous viewing from their entire house whether you watch from the main floor or the balcony. Please remember and remind others about audience etiquette. Audience members should enter and exit the auditorium between routines — not during them — and all cell phones should be turned off.

Matinee Show – 11:30am / Noon curtain
Mid-Afternoon Show – 3:15pm / 4pm curtain
Evening Show – 6:15pm / 7pm curtain

Thank you for your cooperation.

Noblesville High School has a spectacular auditorium with floor level and balcony seating for 1,000-plus. This is our nineteenth year here and we are once again looking forward to using the NHS state-of-the-art stage and equipment.

There is ample parking for all. However, please DO NOT park on the circle and curb in front of the building. You will get ticketed and/or possibly towed. Signs will be posted in the lobby directing you to the proper dressing rooms.

Please be courteous to other performers and respect the facility by cleaning up after yourselves, both at Dress Rehearsal and at the Production. No food or drinks in the auditorium or dressing rooms. Water is allowed. Thank you for your cooperation.

Our production week should be enjoyable for everyone involved. Let’s all stick to the rules for a great week.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Answers to Common Questions

Yes. Although we recommend that students enroll at the beginning of the Academic Term so as not to miss out on important instruction, our classes are structured to meet the needs of students entering classes as late as November, when we typically choose class costumes for the Annual Student Production. Students who register after August 11 will be charged the regular $35 Registration Fee but will not have to pay for prior weeks of classes.

We offer free sample classes during the summer. Check the calendar for dates/times.

During the Academic Term, a student is eligible for a single trial class in one or more dance disciplines.

We recommend you choose the Sapphire Membership, which allows you to make quarterly payments over the 40-week term.  You and your child should know after 10 weeks if it is best to continue in a class, choose a different dance discipline or withdraw and try again later.  If you decide not to continue at the end of a quarter, please notify us in writing.  Otherwise, your account will continue to be charged.

Yes. All of our combo classes have a built-in discount.

GSTC does not offer refunds for missed classes.  Missed classes are usually made up in another class.  Registration, Production and Costume Fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.  Tuition refunds will be handled on a case-by-case basis.  If a tuition refund is granted, a $35 processing fee will apply.
