A large part of dance training includes learning through performance to build confidence and self-esteem. Our dancers worked hard to prepare for this special day on stage. We create a professional recital with custom lights, special effects and videography/photo. We ask that you do your part as a parent: be informed, prepared and most importantly - enjoy the show!

  • Auditorium doors open 30 mins before show time.


  • Parent Volunteers will supervise and escort dancers to/from stage and the theater to watch a portion of the show. We respectively ask that you do not talk to or take your dancer from this designated section.
  • Bring something for your dancer to do while waiting to perform (activities/games).
  • LABEL ALL YOUR ITEMS *We suggest that you bring a laundry basket with your dancer’s name on it to put all items in.
  • If your dancer has a costume change, please inform the Parent Volunteers.


  • We recommend both stage makeup & a polished hair-do to create a finished stage look.
  • Stage makeup ensures your dancer’s facial features will not be washed out under the bright lights.
  • Recital hair should be pulled back away from the face with all hair accessories secured tightly- per your instructor’s directions.  


This year every dancer will dance in the finale’. They will be taught the recital dance during their regular class.     


  • All classes participate in the finale/final bow.
  • When the show is complete, dancers will be escorted to their dressing rooms, where you dropped them off. Only one parent/guardian should come back to pick up your dancer, to help with the congestion backstage. If you have any further questions, please ask your teacher
