Parent testimonials on our recitals:

"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: NO, come one come all!

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 May, why do you need the fee by December 10th?

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


Important Recital Information

  • 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 lunch and snack which should be non-messy food such as sandwich, veggies, chips 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 lunch, 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.
