Spring Recital

Spring Recital

We are moving forward with our 20th season Spring Recital…Reimagined! With careful planning we have created an alternative recital event that will give our students connection and closure as well as give our parents the opportunity to see their child(ren) perform. The magic will happen outdoors at our NDA facility, at a safe distance, and with the health and safety of our dancers and their families prioritized. 
We could not be more grateful to you, our amazing parents, for your support throughout this difficult time.  We are excited to finish our season on a happy note while social distancing and allowing our children to finish strong doing something they love.
We will NOT be charging a Recital Fee this year as a thank you to all of the families who have stuck with us through May and our new June recital. Additionally, fall registration fees for next year will be waived for these customers!

  • Recital Costume Accessory List for 2020 **
    **Tights and gloves may be purchased at our costume pickup location when you drive through to pick up your costume.  However, due to all the difficulties surrounding COVID19 this year, we will be very relaxed about accessories.  If you wish to purchase and wear the specified tights, we would love that!  But we completely understand if this is not possible at this time and are happy to have all dancers that wish to perform in our recital, do so, with or without the specified accessories

2020 Recital Order

It’s Showtime! Get your dancer ready in their costume, tights & make-up and head over to the studio! Our NEW “Drive-In” style Spring Recital means we will be performing OUTSIDE!  You WILL be getting out of your car, but only briefly. You will be allowed to videotape, so you can show your friends and family what a great job your dancer did performing their dance despite all this craziness in their lives.  We will be practicing strict social distancing at our performance.  Each dancer will be permitted to bring 2 guests and each family will have their own designated viewing area. As you arrive in your car, we will usher you to your designated area. Each class will have a 15 min timeslot to arrive – dance – and vacate our event. More specific information will be sent out soon. We can’t wait to see your beautiful dancers in their costumes!!
We remain positive and united in our hopes for the future!  It will be so exciting to dance “together” at recital and next season.  We have much to celebrate!
