Parent testimonials on our recitals:

"Whitney, my wife and I were down from Chattanooga to attend grandparents day yesterday at school with our 5th grader. She and her sister asked us to spend the night so we could attend the performance this morning. They were so excited about it we couldn’t refuse. Honestly, I wouldn't say I was “dreading it” but I could think of several things I’d rather be doing prior to experiencing the performance personally. Well, had we missed it I can’t imagine the level of regret we would be sharing. From the first note of the first song to your closing comments and awards I was totally engaged. Of course we loved both dances that our grandkids performed. But wow, your teachers‘ engagement, the ear to ear grins on so many of the kiddo’s faces, the music selection; everything was just fantastic. My day to day career revolves around customer communication and reputation management. I know how important it is to our companies to hear when clients are happy with our services and I had to give you and your entire team an atta boy for pulling off an awesome recital today. Keep up the great work."

-Happy grandparent :-)

"My daughter truly loved her recital! The whole show was magical and my whole family enjoyed watching! My daughter is excited to return - she's already told me, "mommy, i wanna dance for FIVE years so I can get TWO trophies "

-Happy parent

"I was completely blown away by the dance performance this past Saturday. You and your staff did an amazing job of running a top-notch recital. I was impressed by how smoothly and efficiently the entire event ran --- from early morning check-in to starting promptly to getting each little dancer on and off stage so quickly to coordinating the return of children to their families afterwards. It was all done so beautifully and organized so well. You had enough programs printed. The sound was perfect. The lighting greatly enhanced the dances, and the audiovisual screen prompts were helpful and cleverly in keeping with the IPod Shuffle theme. I was just completely in awe. I honestly didn't expect an after school dance program to put on such a professional, well-run show.

You made it all very easy and convenient for the parents, too. It was so wonderful not to have to worry with tickets, seating, and downtown venues in rush hour traffic!"

"I wanted to make sure to update you on my son - we practiced for a few minutes most days with the videos his teacher made, and he was still not really looking forward to the recital. Not really nervous, he just didn't want to do it. On the day of the show, he was remarkably calm, he was excited to bring his new book to read backstage and I was way more nervous for him than he was! After the show I asked him how it felt to be in a show and if this was his last dance class for a bit. He said he loved it, it wasn't very hard (um, thank you to your teacher and you're welcome for helping you practice! ), and he got to chat with his friends backstage, and would be interested in doing it all again next year. I couldn't quite believe it. So many things had to happen to nurture that mindset shift in him, and I'm so grateful for all the work you all put into making dance accessible and fun. Also, my family and I enjoyed the entire show, it was so adorable and I can tell a lot of effort and planning went into making it run smoothly. The kids clearly have a great connection with their teachers, too. So cool to see. We'll see you again soon! Thanks again for everything."

"Hello - we had a great time seeing the performance on Sunday! We also want to express how much we value that the event is parent-friendly. Having danced growing up I know these things don't always happen:

•Consolidating the performance and dress rehearsal into a single day

•Having only one performance, along with having a venue that seemed to hold everyone

•Including the performance and video in a single cost

•Starting on time

•Moving things along quickly, including using only a portion of the songs at times

•Allowing the kids to have the same tights/shoes/hair style for both performances, even when switching between ballet and hip hop

Thank you for finding that balance between a serious, polished performance and one that appreciates their young age and the parents who are holding things together!"

FAQ

Q: Do most children participate in the recital?

A: YES, we normally have a 99% participation rate.

Q: Is this the only recital?

A: Yes, this is the only recital performance for the school year.

Q: Do I have to pay the fee all at once?

A: Payment plans are available when registering.

Q: Will I have to buy tickets?

A: MORE INFORMATION COMING SOON

Q: Will my child keep their costume?

A: Yes, and the great news is that most kids can wear their costume pieces again because they are purchased mostly from normal big chain clothing stores. We see many kids wearing their outfits to school and to dance class after the recital.

Q: If the recital is in April, why do you need the fee by December 7th?

A: It takes a long time to purchase and prepare costumes for large groups.

Important Recital Information (FOR SHOWS 1-7 ONLY)

•Your child should come dressed in their first costume with all hair and makeup done.

•Please do not send makeup with your child. this becomes very messy backstage.

•Send your child with a book(s) to read while backstage. Do not send any electronics including iPhones, iPads, video games etc. If a child is seen playing with an electronic item, it will be taken and returned to the parents at the end of the show.

•Dancers should bring a snack which should be non-messy food such as pretzels, goldfish etc. They will ONLY be allowed to bring water. Please do not send juice, soda or any fast food.

•All items that you send should be labeled with their last name and put in a backpack. This would include snack, costume items, and a book.

•Dress rehearsal is a closed rehearsal which means you will drop your child off, unless you are signed up to volunteer. We have plenty of staff and volunteers to watch your child and promise they will be safe with us. :-)

•Your child will be safely released back to you at the conclusion of the show. You will not be allowed to pick up your child during the show for safety reasons.

Costume / Recital Important Information

•Please make sure your child is dressed with hair and makeup complete before they get to the recital venue.

•Please label all costume pieces with your child's first and last name. (This includes shoes.)

•If your child's hair is supposed to be in a bun please make sure the bun is neat and tight. You can use hairspray, hair gel, hair nets and bobby pins to make a neat and tight bun. I suggest to first put the hair in a pony tail and then wrap the pony tail around to form a bun. Once that is done you can pin a hair net on and spray well with hairspray.

Testimonials

Dion is a neurodivergent only child with food allergies, in her 1st year of school so naturally I was very hesitant about everything, including her interest in dance class. Her 1st dance experience was through the class EIM ballet and hip hop dance class offered through Evansdale Elementary with Ms. Kimberly and I have nothing but praise for this program. The company is professional, reasonably priced and accommodating. Instructors practice empowerment and positive discipline, are well organized and communicate effectively. Space is made for parent involvement. Whitney is so kind, she has genuine heart for children and her passion for nurturing a love of dance and music is evident in her business practices. Dion's confidence has blossomed, she is learning the importance of hard work, consistency, both self discipline and regulation, as well as committment. She has learned so many of the fundamentals of dance, and free styles as soon as she hears any beat drop. Dancing has helped strengthen her working memory, her gross and fine motor skills. Working with a team has improved her social skills, and gives her an outlet to creatively express herself in an environment that welcomes her high energy and excitement. I am so grateful for EIM and look forward to Dion's continued growth and development as we remain loyal members of the EIM dance community!

Vanessa J.

My daughter loves EIM! She looks forward to going to class every week. Her teacher is very friendly with the parents and patient with the little ones. I can't wait to see her first recital soon! The best part is that it is right at her school! They take her right from class to rehearsal, which saves this busy mom from driving to and from lessons! We look forward to many more years with EIM.
