Recital FAQ

Are all Dance Classes Performing at the Spring Recital?

No. Some classes are technique and training classes that do not learn a routine for Recital. Check the Schedule for classes with **. These are non-recital classes. Classes aged 4-6 have their own Petite Recital at the Studio the week prior and do not perform on the large stage.

What do Volunteers do at Recital?

If you've been to one of our recitals before, you will know that it takes a village to bring the audience a professionally run show and a positive experience for the dancers. Everyone has been working hard all season to showcase their talent and skills at this event! It is customary for us to call for volunteers to assist in the backstage area and dressing rooms to support and monitor the dancers, as well as scan tickets and usher guests to their seats. Volunteers will always be able to watch their dancer perform on the stage.

What About Costumes and Shoes?

In January, you received a charge for recital fee. This covers the cost of the costume and recital tights. Recital is a professional show with a high standard of presentation in production, costuming, music, and choreography. Dance shoes for recital must be clean and appropriate. Each teacher will specify what shoes will be required for the show.
