recital & other events 

In addition to our annual recital, we have several other fun events throughout the year.

~recital                                             click here to go to our recital page

Our annual performance is held in early June.  All students are encouraged to participate although it is not required of any one.  A recital is an important culmination of months of training and preparation.  Every dancer needs the excitement and pride of having their moment in the spotlight.  If you do not wish for your child to participate in all or part of their dances, please notify the office in writing by December 1st.  (A few of our classes do not participate in the recital and these are marked on our class schedule.)

expenses for recital participation
  • costumes- We order costumes for our June recital in early December.  They generally run $70 to $95 per costume.  Costume cost will include one pair of tights and any extra accessories; hat, ribbons, etc.  You are responsible for purchasing the proper color/type shoes needed for the performance.   Costume fees will be included in your budget billing.  We must pay for the costumes in full at the time we order and we will not order will not order costumes unless your account is current.  Once costumes are ordered they are non-refundable.
  • recital fee & tickets- Each family in the recital will receive two complimentary tickets to their show and a souvenir recital program.  Additional tickets will be available for purchase in mid-May.  Tickets for Recital 2015 were $12. 
all other recital expenses are optional
  • Pictures- Each year we have a photographer come in to take student pictures at our studio.  We take both individual and group photos.  These will be taken during class time for everyone's convenience.  Even if you don't plan to purchase any photos, we ask that you come in costume for the group photo so that everyone is included.  All group photos are included in our souvenir recital program.
  • DVDs- We will have DVDs of the recital available for purchase.  If you would like to videotape yourself, you may do so only at dress rehearsal.
