Let's Dance!


What is a recital?

Recital is a huge production(this year two productions) where ALL dancers of the studio are invited. Families fly into town, hair appointments are made for the perfect bun or ponytail, and the dancers are excited to show off what they have worked so hard on in their dance classes. Costumes, great music, and fun fill the entire show time. This is such an important event every year for the dancers. No matter if you are a returning dancer or a new dancer to the studio, recital is something the dancers love to keep being a part of. They get excited about being on a huge stage under the professional lights and hearing their families cheer their name.


When is recital?

Recitals 2024 are on Sunday, June 9th at 2:30pm and 6pm.

Dress rehearsals will take place at the theatre on June 1st for certain dancers.

PROMPTLY at 2:30 and 6pm. Please encourage all family members to arrive and be seated on time. 


How long is the show?

We are striving for June 2024 recitals to run no longer than an hour and a half, including a 15 minute intermission. Yes. Start times


Do I have to stay for the entire show?

Yes. Start times are much earlier this year and shows are shorter this year to allow for everyone to please stay and give the same audience to the very last part of the show as the very first part of the show has.

How many tickets does my family get?

Each family is able to purchase up to 8 tickets for each show they are assigned to.


When do tickets go on sale?

Tickets go on sale May 3rd-May 24th.


I have way more than 8 guests wanting to attend, how do I get additional tickets?

Each family is allowed to go online to purchase 8 tickets per show they are assigned to. We are giving each family the duration of May 3rd-May 24th to purchase the eight tickets, but come May 24th, we will be reaching out to those families who have not sold theirs to discuss transferring them to a family in queue. You may also buy the remaining tickets out of your personal 8 tickets if you have guests on the fence about coming. Ultimately, we want to be ahead of the game and if we wait until two days before the shows to see that families have not sold more than half of their tickets, that means those seats are empty and could have been filled with families that could have seen the show. 


Who all needs to buy a ticket?

If you are sitting in a seat at the production, you must buy a ticket.


How much are tickets?

Tickets for June 2024 recitals are $30 per ticket.


Where do I go to buy tickets?




What is seating like for recitals this year?

This year is general seating. 


Are there wheelchair accessible seats at the theatre?

There are 6 wheelchair spaces at the theatre. 


Why does my child need to attend their dress rehearsal in order to perform for recitals?

If they do not attend dress rehearsal, there is no way they will know what is going on when recital days arrives. Dress rehearsal is MANDATORY for those who have one assigned for the difficulty and levels on which they are performing..

For example: If my child is in class Tuesday from 4:30-6 at the studio, my child TO BE ON STAGE at 5pm. 

Which means my child needs to be at the theatre 15 minutes prior at 5pm. 

There will be no parents allowed in the dress rehearsals, except those that are working with the studio. There will be 8 VIP parents that will help with the flow of the show. All other parents are to drop their dancers off at the door and the dancers will be escorted to the proper location. When dress rehearsal is over, parents can pick the dancers up at the door and they will safely be released to the parents.
