Finale Rehearsal

We will rehearse the finales for recitals on June 6th at McAully Hall in the Center for Nonprofits before dress rehearsal so we can work out the details and timing of the finale before dressed rehearsal. These rehearsals are not mandatory but we encourage all to participate that can so your child will be more prepared and confident at dressed rehearsal and recital.

  • Recital 1 finale rehearsal is from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm.

  • Recital 2 students will rehearse from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm.

During Dress Rehearsal we will rehearse the finale between during the intermission time slot as listed in the lineup so that students who are not in Act II do not have to remain through the end of the rehearsal.

Recital Tickets

There will be no recital tickets this year due to the auditorium we are at. Seating is on a first come first serve basis. Auditorium doors open 45 minutes prior to the show. Mask will also be required in the auditorium.


Home Study                                       

To ensure that the students feel confident about their performance, we ask parents and guardians to encourage them to rehearse their recital choreography on a regular basis. Parents may film their child's dance routine in the studio. Some dances may be available on our YouTube channel:


Snack Money                                    

Parents, please send snack food or money for snacks with your child. Most children are hungry after school and need a snack of some kind. We are having more and more of the students asking for food at the studio.


Recital T-Shirts                      

T-shirts will be ordered on May 24th. The shirts will be (pre-washed and pre-shrunk) Navy Heather Blend with white lettering. There will be a design on the front and names of all students participating in recital on the back. Shirts will be available in child and adult sizes. They should run the same size as last year's recital T's. The cost is $22.00 each. Extras will be ordered but can not guarantee what sizes and quantity will be available. We  would suggest pre-ordering your shirt. Order forms will be available at the desk and need to be pre-paid. Orders need to be turned in by May 24th.
