ANNUAL RECITAL PERFORMANCES

Annual dance recital performances are held in May or June.  The date, time and location are to be announced.  We will be diligently researching for the best possible facility coinciding with a balance of cost-effectiveness.  It is our standard that the performances are presented in a highly professional quality environment and is imperative for your child’s training.  This is an opportunity for when dancers can demonstrate and showcase their talents, abilities and acquired skills learned throughout the year in a theatrical setting.  This positive experience helps develop self-confidence, poise, and a sense of accomplishment that comes from stage presence and performing in front of a large audience.  We strive to keep all family members together in the same show.  However, when working with so many families and dancers who take multiple classes, it is not always feasible.
Recital Participation Fee:  Per family due by February 1st.  This fee is required to assist in offsetting the cost of production expenses. Withdrawal from the studio after February 1st will result in forfeit of the Recital Fee.  All recital fees are non-refundable.
