2017 Recital – General Information

Our annual recital  is held at the end of the year and showcases the hard work of all our students.

We begin planning our recitals in the early months of the year. Please keep an eye out for updates on this page.

The recital is a fun and exciting opportunity for students to perform onstage for family and friends.

It is a time for them to show off what they  learn throughout the year.

For most it is the highlight of the dancing year. Students wear costumes and make-up and show dance(s) that they work on in class during the second part of the year.

Rehearsals: Attending rehearsals means that children will feel more at ease during their recital. They will be more comfortable dancing in a new area. They will be familiar with the set of the stage and with having other performers around them.

To ensure the performances run smoothly, our student are asked to attend rehearsals in the weeks leading up to their recital. Most students will have to take part in TWO extra rehearsals – A full show put-together as well as a theater rehearsal.
