FOR ALTERING SOLO COSTUMES, we highly recommend making the trip to Manassas, VA to see TANG. She is a legend in the area and many other schools go to her for solo costume alterations. She has YEARS of experience altering solo Irish dance dresses. Many Culkin dancers have used her services and have been extremely happy with the outcome of their dresses. She is the one to trust when needing solo alterations. Here is the link to “TANG” http://www.tangsalterations.com
