Premium Raw Edge Cropped Hoodie
The Raw Edge Hoodie that you already know and love is available with a slight change! We’ve removed the customized elastic bands from the sleeves and kept it simple.

The soft fleece fabric will have your students and parents comfortable and cozy while lounging or going to and from practice. This hoodie can also be styled with a pair of jeans or leggings for a casual street look while representing your studio!
Relaxed Street Short
Completely new to Limelight, the Relaxed Street Short is a unisex short with a relaxed fit that can be styled for street wear or thrown on on top of training wear. This is also a great piece to wear during practice for a hip hop class. With full-color, 3D raised screen print available to add your logo to the left leg of the short, your students will love being comfortable while representing their favorite studio! These shorts are made from a material that features a more structured fit and less stretch, creating a more “street style” look.

Whether you’re dancing, flipping or stunting, these sweatpants were designed with performers in mind. Created with a mid-weight soft cotton-blend fabric, you’re able to move freely for the ideal combination of hip-hop style and studio-to-stage comfort. Not only do you have a choice of nine fleece colors, but with our 3D raised screen print, you can also add text horizontally or vertically on the left leg, adding your personal style to the garment.

Add your logo repeating around the waistband to allow your students to represent your brand wherever they go.
A new product just for this event! This is your basic pullover hoodie made from a soft fleece/polyester blend and will be the hoodie you never want to take off.

Now that you’ve met all of the products available for the Recital Ready Event, let’s talk about three different ways you can boost your recital revenue.
Have you considered setting up an online or in person presale for your recital merchandise? We have so many fantastic, premium garments to choose from in our Recital Ready Event. At unbelievable prices, you’re able to mark up the price to your students. Not only does presale get your students excited about what’s coming, but it also allows you to have security and peace of mind knowing you already have recital merchandise purchased.
Presale can also give you an estimate on how much merchandise to order for your recital as you can gauge interest on your custom garments.
2. Merchandise Booth
Limelight is here to set you up for success. We highly recommend setting up a booth at your recital venue with a display of all of your available recital-branded merchandise. We have resources to set you up for success such as price sheet templates, branded tablecloths/photo backdrops, tips and more.
This is a great place to be able to answer questions your students or parents have about any of the products. The Limelight team is always here to help you answer any questions about the merchandise. You can also find answers on our website at limelightteamwear.com
3. Online Sales
Online sales can be beneficial for both pre-sale and selling any remaining merchandise (if any) after the recital ends. This is a great opportunity to sell to students who possibly missed the recital or didn’t get a chance to shop at the recital. We understand how busy it is on the day of the recital and some students and parents may not have time to pop by the merchandise booth.
At the recital, we recommend hanging flyers around the venue letting them know that shopping online is an option with pick up at the studio the following week.
Our team is here to help you through the ordering process for this event and we cannot wait to help you get prepared for a crazy time of year and help reduce stress when the time comes.
